Cripsii Cypress


This broad, conical-shaped evergreen has graceful, fern-like branchlets which gently droop at branch tips. Beautiful foliage matures to green throughout the interior of the tree but some random yellow highlights are still obvious in clustered sprays at branch ends, giving the trees a wonderful two-toned effect.

‘Crippsii’ distinguishes itself from the many weeping forms of Falscypress with horizontal fans of foliage on branches that reach skyward.
