Attractive and decorative - the yellow false cypress Stardust
As its name suggests, the Lawson mock cypress is not a true cypress, but belongs to the mock cypress genus, which looks very similar to the true cypress. The Chameacyparis Stardust variety is particularly impressive with its conical and dense growth and attractive colouring. A yellow garden cypress sets attractive accents in the garden all year round and, with its evergreen needle-shaped foliage, is a real ornament.
Attractive growth habit and unusual colouring of the cypress
The yellow false cypress Stardust impresses with its broad, conical and dense growth and its yellow-green to yellow flowers all year round. The tree is evergreen and also creates beautiful accents in the winter garden with its fresh colour. The Chameacyparis Stardust variety can reach a height of 6 to 8m over the years with a growth rate of 10 to a maximum of 20cm per year.
Chameacyparis Stardust -Unsensitive and easy to care for
The yellow garden cypress thrives in normal garden soil. The soil should be well drained because the Lawson Cypress does not tolerate waterlogging. The hardy yellow garden cypress loves a sunny to semi-shady location and can be planted all year round. The yellow bald cypress does not need winter protection, as it is absolutely frost and wind tolerant.
The Lawson Cypress of the Chameacyparis Stardust variety is very tolerant of pruning. If the tree is in a solitary position, the yellow garden cypress does not necessarily need to be pruned. The natural conical growth habit makes the yellow garden cypress a real eye-catcher in the garden.
Care of the yellow garden cypress as a hedge
Due to its dense growth and evergreen foliage, it is worth planting the cypress as a hedge. For planting as a hedge you need about 4 - 5 plants per metre. Such a hedge looks very natural and is opaque all year round.
If you plant the cypress as a hedge, regular pruning and shaping is essential. This way, the hedge not only retains the desired shape. Regular pruning also has a lasting effect on the growth of the shoots. If the cypress is planted as a hedge and pruned regularly, the shoots will grow particularly densely.
Yellow bald cypress Stardust - versatile in the garden
The yellow bald cypress Stardust is often planted as a hedge. However, the yellow bald cypress Stardust only develops its full beauty as a specimen or when planted in small groups. It can be combined well with most garden plants that, like the yellow false cypress Stardust, like a sunny to semi-shady location.
Small group plantings are visually enhanced when perennials such as verbena, but also hortensia or säuleneiben grow in the immediate vicinity of the false cypress. The attractive tree fits well in front gardens, as an eye-catcher in rock gardens or in park-like gardens.
