How to Use Celtic Pride® Siberian Cypress in the Landscape

Plant a row of Celtic Pride near the edge of paved paths for an excellent edging plant. Space them five feet apart and allow 30 inches away from the path, so their furthest spray will softly cross over the boundary.

Give them room to develop from their crown into the mature spread listed on the Plant Highlights. Preplanning for the visual effect you want will reduce mostif not allpruning tasks.

Add them as an underplanting to taller evergreen shrubs or trees. Or create a blissfully easy-care lawn planting underneath an ornamental Redbud or Flowering Dogwood tree from our extensive online collection.

This choice keeps everyone with an opinion happy. Kids can't resist running their hands along the downturned tips of the fluffy foliage!

Celtic Pride is a great choice to include near your outdoor entertainment area. Keep them in long planter boxes, or add to patio beds with Beverly™ Eleganza® Hybrid Tea Rose and Spartan Juniper Spiral Topiary as a formal accent.

Dress them up or down. This choice looks great in foundation plantings and in mixed borders.

But there is something almost magical about a mass planting of Celtic Price Siberian Cypress running down the length of a slope. This larger-than-life application gives everyone a chance to study the small, organic hills and valleys and the way the sprays lift and dip in the wind.

Add them to a mixed planting on a steep hill for a fantastic garden feature. Run a collection of Sumac with landscape Juniper shrubs and finish with several staggered rows of Celtic Pride closer to ground level.

You'll turn a liability into a landscape asset!

#ProPlantTips for Care

This cold-hardy plant prefers well-drained soil. Give it at least four hours of direct sunlight a day for top-notch color.

Apply a moderate amount of water on a consistent basis. Use mulch to keep the roots cool, but pull it back away from touching the trunk.

Weed newly installed mass plantings as the canopies grow together and touch. You may want to shape with light trimming in spring, but shouldn't need to do much beyond that.

Fertilize with an evergreen formula according to the directions. The best support you can give your new plants is to use Nature Hills Root Booster during planting for life-long benefits that never wear out.

In deer country, all newly installed plant material should get an application of Deer Repellent. Protect your landscaping investment by reapplying as directed by the label.

Make the most of your Great Outdoors with these very special plants that bring the big picture home. Enjoy your freedom from toil and stress with the showy good looks of this Proven Winner.
