Chamaecyparis Pisifera Filifera Aurea is a low growing conifer and is known as the Sawara Cypress tree or False Cypress. It is native to Japan and Taiwan.

Grown for its wood in Japan, the wood from these trees is used for building temples but it has become a very popular ornamental cypress for parks and gardens both in the Far East and now in Western Europe.
This golden cultivar has attractive feathery, yellow foliage. Chamaecyparis Pisifera Filifera Aurea has received the AGM Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society, a sure sign that it will perform well in most gardens. 

The evergreen foliage of Chamaecyparis Pisifera Filifera Aurea is extremely ornamental, persisting throughout the year and providing valuable winter colour for your garden. Its thread-like foliage is a bright gold when young, contrasting with the older green foliage beneath. The gracefully weeping branches create a dense mound while the plants are young. The peeling, red-brown bark adds to the visual interest.

Hardy throughout the UK and continental Europe, the Sawara Cypress tree will grow to a metre in height in 10 years before reaching a mature height of 8-12 metres and spread of 4-8 metres in 20 to 50 years, forming a broad cone shape. Pruning is only recommended to remove dead or broken branches.  

Plant your Chamaecyparis Pisifera Filifera Aurea in an exposed or sheltered position in acid or neutral moist but well-drained soil. Once established it is drought-tolerant. Full sun is recommended for the best colour development. While it is not suitable for coastal plantings, it is very tolerant of urban pollution so makes a good selection for city gardens. Resistant to deer, it will do well in country settings.

Sawara Cypress is an excellent specimen shrub or tree for a focal point in a lawn, where its striking colour will show to good advantage. A row of Chamaecyparis Pisifera Filifera Aurea would make an excellent boundary hedge with its dense growth and eventual height, or it could be interplanted with other species for a highlight in a mixed hedge. 

Growing Tip: Prefers slightly acidic soils.
