Gold Mop Weeping Threadleaf Cypress
chamaecyparis pisifera 'gold mop'
Gold Mop Cypress makes a glowing addition to any landscape design, as it delivers a bright punch of color in a wildly expressive fashion.
Considered an evergreen, the Gold Mop Cypress is actually quite a rare tool to use in the garden for the simple fact that its foliage is not green. Instead, it is a brilliant shade of shimmering yellow gold that is maintained throughout the year. Gold Mop's weeping foliage appears fine and feathery. Branches appear to burst outward from the center in all directions like a fountain. Great for use in mass plantings, borders, foundation plantings, or large container gardening.
