Plant with a hand full of Insecticide granules, superphosphate and compost!!!
Cupressus macrocarpa 'Wilma' is a dense, narrow, columnar upright selection of Monterey cypress with more-or-less fastigiate branching and bright-yellow juvenile foliage with a green tint in shaded areas. When crushed the needles smell strongly of lemon, the source of one of the commercial names for this plant, Lemon cypress.
After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 5 feet (1.8 m) tall and 2 feet (60 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of around 6 inches (15 cm).
This conifer is in mass-production world-wide for use in the houseplant industry because of its hardiness issues.
