Siberian Cypress

Botanical Name: MICROBIOTA DECUSSATA

Siberian Cypress is a coniferous evergreen shrub that grows in a spreading mat or low mound. The foliage is held in flat sprays which curve gracefully downward at the tips. Foliage and shoots are bright yellowish green, turning dirty brown or purplish in winter.

Siberian Cypress makes an excellent groundcover, indeed one of the finest of the coniferous evergreens for gardeners in cold climates. It thrives in a wide variety of soils and can tolerate more shade than most coniferous evergreens.
