Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Squarrosa Sulphurea'
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 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.
