Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Forsteckensis
Lawson’s Cypress Forsteckensis is an evergreen globe-shaped dwarf conifer. It suits containers, rock gardens, and compact outside spaces.

Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana is native to the Western USA where it grows in tough conditions. Its cultivar Forsteckensis was introduced in Germany in the 1880s and became popular with the Victorians who planted them in their modern rock gardens.

Lawson’s Cypress Forsteckensis is a globe-shaped very dense conifer with small blue-grey leaves that look mossy and soft. It holds colour all year round.

Height And Spread of Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Forsteckensis
This is a small cultivar of cypress that will reach half a metre in height and half a metre in width over 10 years. It is very popular for its globose shape and neat growth habit.

How Hardy is Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Forsteckensis
Cypress is naturally very hardy and Lawson’s Cypress Forsteckensis maintains these traits. It will take the coldest of UK winters and the hottest summers in its stride. Ensure the roots are well-drained and you can leave this dwarf cypress to its own devices.

How To Use Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Forsteckensis
A great addition to rock gardens where its moss-like globular shape adds interest but doesn’t get too large. It can cope with the dry and hot conditions in a rock or gravel garden and looks especially good in groups of three or matched with different textured evergreens. It’s possible to tightly clip this cypress into a ball and maintain it with a yearly prune.

This is a versatile, rightly popular evergreen with great character. A good ‘gap-in-the-border’ filler that will also thrive in a well-watered and fed pot on the deck.

How To Care For Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Forsteckensis
Lawson’s Cypress Forsteckensis will grow in all well-drained soil including chalk. It’s rarely bothered by pests and doesn’t require pruning.

Water well until established and apply a thick layer of mulch around the roots in early spring for the brightest foliage and good health throughout the year.
