Chamaecyparis pis. Plumosa Auerea – The photograph shown on on this page shows the actual tree that you would receive. This is a relatively mature single stem specimen ‘cloud’ tree and has well developed and full foliage pads. The pads are generally green in colour and turn bronze in the winter so offer all year round interest. Maintaining the ‘clouds’ of the foliage pads is a fairly easy task and the excess growth can be simply cut off using sharp secateurs or pruning shears. Growth on the underside of the foliage pads should be removed for best results.
