Russian Cypress

For this week we look at the Russian Cypress. This low growing evergreen likes full sun to full shade. It adapts to many soil and temperature conditions. This evergreen is a hardy example of plant life in Siberia, where only the strong survive.

It’s deer resistant, colorful exterior is a pleasant surprise to your yard or garden. Its fan type sprays are soft to the touch and give off a vibrant, eye-catching green then turning to a combination of dark purple/golden hue for the Winter season. It has a maturity height of 6 to 12 inches combined with a spread of 3 to 4 feet will provide a particularly good cover for your rock garden or shaded bed where other greenery may not thrive. Consider this evergreen when planning around the house in those trouble spots.
