Cupressus macro. 'Goldcrest Wilma' (Lemon Cypress, Monterey)
Its lovely pyramidal form and vibrant chartreuse foliage are a terrific decorative accent indoors or out. For interiors or outdoors on a porch, patio, or balcony. Beautiful when used as a pair on either side of an entranceway. It can be planted in the landscape where it will grow into a tree.

Water: Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water.
Light: Select a window that provides good sunlight and turn the container regularly to give each side a turn. The houseplant requires 4-6 hours of direct sun or place it outside in full shade (bright light but little or no direct sun)
Prune: Most container plants can be pruned freely to maintain the desired size and shape. Keeping the foliage trimmed also keeps the plants looking neat and tidy, encourages the plant to develop more side shoots and flowers, and reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system. This is important since the roots are in a confined space.
Repot every 2 years in the same container or in a container slightly larger than the diameter of the roots.
You can apply a standard, slow-release 20-20-20 fertilizer before new growth appears in the spring.
Plants might have slight variations in color, texture, finish, and size. You can expect some differences from what is displayed on our website because you are choosing a one-of-a-kind piece from mother nature.
