Product Overview

Night Light Chamaecyparis (false cypress) from the Southern Living Plant Collection is the colorful evergreen foliage you've been looking for. Chartreuse yellow-green foliage emerges on the outermost portion of the plant, while darker green foliage is hidden just below. The outermost foliage turns bronze in the winter, while the inner portion remains green, ensuring your garden gets 12-months of color from this gorgeous evergreen. This cypress has a dense mounded habit that is easily shaped for colorful, low growing ombre hedges when planted in mass. Or plant it in a container to give your front door or back patio and exciting burst of chartreuse color that will pair well with red, purple or darker green weeping perennials. If planting a hedge, space your Night Light approximately 3 ft. apart to create a seamless hedge. If planting as a specimen or mixed garden, space them 5 ft. or more apart to allow Night Light to achieve its mature width. Night Light is suited to a variety of lighting conditions from Full Sun to Part Shade. In full sun, you won't have to worry about scorched foliage, this false cypress can stand the heat.
  • Colorful yellow green foliage spring to fall, changing to bronze in winter
  • Inner foliage of the plant is darker green
  • Cypress that performs well in full sun without experiencing leaf scorch
  • Dense mounded habit makes it perfect as an accent plant, in mixed gardens, as a container plant, in mass plantings or as colorful low hedge
  • Hardy in USDA zones 5 to zones 8
