The King’s Gold Threadleaf False Cypress is a mounding evergreen with unique arching threadlike stems. It grows steadily into a graceful mound of golden foliage 3 to 5 feet tall, and the same across. It is ideal for bringing permanent rich color to the foundation planting around your home, to your garden beds, or as a specimen in a lawn or a stone-mulched bed. It is more resistant to the heat and humidity of southern gardens than other similar plants, and it has been specially selected to hold its gold color through the summer months, when other golden forms of this plant turn requires no trimming or training to develop into a stunning specimen that will be an eye-catching feature in your garden, giving a sense of structure and maturity to your layout.

  • Beautiful mound of arching golden foliage
  • Best variety for hot, humid areas
  • Good cold resistance too
  • Ideal specimen or focal plant
  • Retains its strong gold color all year round

The King’s Gold Threadleaf False Cypress grows well in partial shade or full sun. Unlike other varieties it will not scorch or burn in all-day sunshine. It grows in most garden soils, and does best in richer soils with a good supply of water. It does not like to be in soil that is constantly wet. It has no pests or diseases of any significance and it is usually not eaten by deer. Despite its striking beauty, this plant needs no special care at all to become an important specimen in your garden.
