The Red Star White Cypress is an unusual and attractive small, upright evergreen, grown for its handsome winter colors of plum-purple and bronze. It has slightly prickly foliage that makes it look more like a juniper, with new spring-growth that is bright silver-blue and summer foliage that is blue-green. With its constantly changing colors this lively tree will bring lots of changes to your garden landscape and really add a lot of interest and visual value, without needing any care at all. As well, this plant grows well in damp or wet soil, where most other evergreens will not thrive, so it makes a great choice for low-lying areas. However if you just have a regular garden, the Red Star White Cypress will be completely happy too – this is a truly trouble-free plant that anyone can grow and enjoy.

  • A big splash in winter with rich plum-purple foliage
  • Silver-blue and then blue-green in spring and summer
  • Grows into an upright dense bush that could eventually reach 20 feet
  • Thrives in those wet areas where other plants fail, or in regular soil too
  • Easy to grow and totally pest free

This bush needs no care at all and it is free of any pests. Just plant it in a sunny spot to help it develop the best winter colors and sit back to enjoy the view. This is a great choice for something different and a tree that you will not see in very many gardens, despite it being so easy to grow. It is a special form of a native American tree, so it is ideal for a modern natural gardens too.
