Plant Features

Soft Serve® Chamaecyparis Plants is a compact, conical falsecypress with graceful, soft branches and bright green leaves flecked with silver-blue on the underside. This evergreen is a sport of the popular 'Boulevard' cultivar and is a great alternative to dwarf Alberta spruce. It is extremely adaptable, but grows best in moist, well-drained, lime-free soils. No pruning is required to maintain its compact size, although minimal pruning can be done in the summer to keep it smaller. To keep your Soft Serve® Chamaecyparis healthy and vibrant, fertilize with a slow release fertilizer for evergreens in early spring and protect it from harsh winter sun and winds. With its graceful, soft foliage and compact form, Soft Serve® Chamaecyparis is a beautiful addition to any garden.".

We had an unusually cold winter and had to replace our 20 year old rosemary shaped like a Christmas tree. This plant looks more appealing anyway

The plants came in great shape and the shipping was super fast. I’ve ordered many bushes and trees from this company and will continue to do so. Would definitely recommend to anybody to order from here above all other companies.
