Cupressus macrocarpa - Lemon Cypress
This cultivar of Cupressus macrocarpa is known as Lemon Cypress for its lime-green scale-like leaves and bright citrusy scent. When this tree outgrows its pot, you might consider planting it outside.
Lemon Cypress is hardy in zones 7-10, and it can be grown indoors in a sunny location, on a patio, or sometimes outdoors. Check your USDA Zone before planting outdoors.
Add the Burlap Pot-Cover Kit to your order to make the plant a festive addition to your home.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" feels barely moist

Healthy & Soft
Loving my lemon cypress. It brightens up my wintery dining room and smells so good. And I love how soft it is. So far it is very healthy. Looking forward to finding the "right" pot to show off the bright green color.
This gorgeous and delicate plant arrived healthy and tenderly packaged. Just as described on the Pistils Nursery website.
