Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Squarrosa Sulphurea'


Overall Description


An interesting plant with very soft, lime green foliage showing especially good color with lots of sun exposure - the more sun it receives, the more it takes on an almost chartreuse yellow foliage color. Very attractive. Fairly open, semi-pyramidal in growth - moderate to fast growth. Prefers moist, well drained soil with top dressing of mulch or bark to provide organic compounds. Works well as an accent plant, or in group plantings. Older foliage towards the center of the tree will brown & fall off each winter - oftentimes replace with new shoots the following growing season.
This variety makes a great specimen planting, and is sure to be a conversation piece as it matures. I personally suggest this variety as an addition to any evergreen / conifer collection - one of my favorites. The color & texture are a superb combination, and always adds a change of pace or brightens up most any landscape.

--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.
