PINPOINT® Blue & Gold False Cypress

Zone: 5, 6, 7 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 15-20' Width/Spread: 5-7'

Two-toned evergreen. Get more color in a small space with Pinpoint® Blue & Gold chamaecyparis. Its appealing texture and versatile columnar habit are further accentuated by its feathery two toned foliage. New growth emerges a vivid lime-gold before maturing to a powdery blue that looks good with any color and style of architecture. Like Pinpoint® Blue chamaecyparis, its narrow habit ensures space saving, low maintenance performance.


Light: Grows best in a spot that gets a minimum of four hours of direct sun exposure, up to all day light.

Soil: Will grow in any type of well-draining soil.

Water: Needs regular moisture, as it does not tolerate drought or dryness one bit. Use a layer of mulch to keep the soil moist.

Fertilizing: Doesn’t typically need fertilizer.

Pruning: Doesn’t generally need much pruning, but you can shape it in late springtime.
