Chamaecyparis pisifera filifera ‘Sungold’ (Sungold Thread-Branch Cypress)

Compact, mounding shrub with consistent golden yellow new foliage, even in full sun. Excellent mop-headed accent plant that makes nice background border or small hedge. Evergreen. Slow growing to 5 to 6 ft. tall, 7 to 8 ft. wide.

Care Information

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape. Pruning time: fall.

Design Ideas

Beautiful evergreen plant that adds light and color to your garden all year long. Place as a specimen or accent plant, or mass into a border or hedge. The mop-head adds extra texture to a conifer garden.

Companion Plants

Mix with other conifers for year-round interest. Purple foliage plants like Smoke Tree, Barberry, Ninebark and Weigela contrast well with the new, yellow growth. A variety of sun loving perennials with pink, purple, or blue blooms give you a summer garden look alive with color and texture.
