SOFT SERVE® Gold False Cypress

Zone: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun, Part Sun Height: 6-10' Width/Spread: 6-10'

Soft Serve® Sawara cypress has long been popular as an easy-care alternative to dwarf Alberta spruce, and we’re pleased to offer this showier version in cheery gold. It shares the same attractive pyramidal habit and easy-going care. Hardy and resistant to burning from sun and wind.


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.
