Maintenance Notes

This soft-to-the-touch evergreen needs little maintenance. It grows well in sun or part shade (minimum of four hours of bright sun each day), but it does need well-drained soil.

Uses Notes

The pyramidal shape of Soft Serve Gold false cypress means it will be wider at its base and narrow at the top. Its strong silhouette means it lends a touch of formality wherever it is planted.
