Cupressus macrocarpa 'Wilma Goldcrest'

Wilma Goldcrest Cypress

Evergreen Conifer, Shrub

This cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa 'Wilma Goldcrest') is a finely textured, columnar conifer with vivid, acid-green foliage that makes a striking focal point in the garden. Aromatic foliage exudes a lemon scent when touched. Chartreuse foliage is a great color accent year-round, but screams for attention during the gray days of winter.
