Cupressus macrocarpa 'Goldcrest'
Plant with a hand full of Insecticide granules, superphosphate and compost!!!
This ever popular and versatile conifer makes a near perfect standard with miniscule leaves and a dense, compact growth habit. It clips easily into many different topiary shapes including spirals, poodles (best described as multi-tiered standards with two or more ‘balls’ of foliage on a single stem) and other less formal designs. The suggested stem height for these standards is 75 cm to 150 cm. They are suitable for pots and containers or as a garden specimen. Grown in full sun ‘Goldcrest’ foliage maintains a rich golden colour; in light shade the foliage tends to be more of a lime-green hue. It is cold and wind tolerant and grows well throughout our country.
