False Cypress Soft Serve Gold

Availability: Out of stock

Delicious evergreen color for your garden! 

False Cypress Soft Serve Gold adds a delectable touch to your landscape and is as sweet and easy as a summer ice-cream cone. False Cypress, in general, is one of those plants that should be in your garden in some form (and there are many). It is a beautiful plant that adds visual vertical interest and nice shape to the landscape. Soft Serve Gold is extremely low-maintenance and is a great alternative to more fickle Alberta Spruce. At only 6-10 feet tall, they fit just about anywhere.

Soft Serve Gold has feathery yellow-green foliage that stands out all year in the garden. The soft needles grow in graceful whorls all along the stems creating a “soft-serve ice cream” look.

Use Soft Serve Gold as a fun border plant or to punch up a tired foundation planting. They add instant interest wherever you plant them. They are soft - both to look at and to touch. They complement just about any other plant in your garden, too.

This is an evergreen so it looks great year-round. Summer heat or winter cold, neither faze Soft Serve Gold.

They have a cute chunky columnar habit that will fit into just about any garden, big, small or other. They are very useful in any setting, from contemporary to cottage to country.

Soft Serve Gold is a ‘don’t miss’ addition to you garden this year. Order soon!
