Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Aurea'


Overall Description


Gold Thread Cypress is actually a variety of Chamaecyparis (False Cypress), but is so commonly known as a cypress that we chose to list it among our other cypress selections. This plant has a mounding growth habit which can be kept lower by pruning. It must be planted in full sun to maintain its exceptionally rich gold color, otherwise the result is more of a lime green color if planted in too much shade. It's a very popular accent plant due to its stunning year around yellow gold color and soft threadlike foliage.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
