Blue Moss Falsecypress Growing and Maintenance Tips

This cultivar tolerates a variety of soil types and growing conditions and is frequently used in topiary designs such as animals, and finely detailed sculptures. In warmer locations, light shade from the intense, summer sun will prevent surface burning. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended for an exposed location.
