Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Ellwoodii Gold Pom Pom Trees
At around 1 metre tall, these multi-stemmed Chamaecyparis topiary pom pom trees offer great value for money. Commonly known as Elwood's Gold, False Cypress and Lawson's Cypress.
Chamaecyparis (sometimes referred to as False Cypress) is often used for topiary or the Japanese art of Niwaki (nurturing trees to grow into a particular shape). This is a slow-growing conifer with a naturally compact and dense shape. Despite their striking looks, these topiary pom pom trees are low maintenance, needing a trim at most twice per year.
Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Ellwoodii Gold (Lawson’s Cypress) has highly attractive & eye-catching foliage – its light green leaves, particularly the new growth in spring are tipped with golden yellow, giving it golden hue. This is particularly spectacular as the normally green pom poms turn to gold.
Chamaecyparis Ellwood’s Gold enjoys full sun and has a hardy temperament. When planting, back-fill with soil mixed with a peat substitute and a suitable fertiliser.
