Golden Threadleaf Falsecypress Growing and Maintenance Tips
The Golden Threadleaf falsecypress requires little pruning to maintain its size. In warmer sun-exposed locations, partial shade will prevent surface burning. This cultivar is extremely tolerant of urban pollution making it ideal for city environments. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.
