Sunshine yellow all year long!

Some things are worth the wait. Japanese False Cypress Lemon Thread is one of those things. This slow grower will only reach 3 to 5 feet tall in 20 years, but the impact it will make in your garden will be much bigger!

Lemon Thread is an evergreen that keeps its soft-looking bushy needle-like foliage all year long. It’s not fair to call it an evergreen, though, as its color is truly a striking lemon-lime, emphasis on lemon. The yellow color lights up when you put it next to other evergreens, conifers or even a brick wall. In the dead of winter Lemon Thread bring a shot of much-needed color to your garden.

Lemon Thread grows well in average, well-drained soil in all but the shadiest conditions. (For the best yellow color, though, plant it in full sun!)

The soft texture is amazing. The needles/leaves look almost like they are dripping off of the plant.

Use Lemon thread as an accent or in groups. Either way it is going to be a star in your garden!
