I hunted for years for this plant and finally found a single specimen growing in a yard in Baltimore. With the same form as the gold-thread cypress, this conifer has variegations of cream and green in the thread-like branches. To me, it resembles a yellow and green, worn-out mop stuck in the ground...an important landscape feature here in the South. It is slow-growing compared to the golden forms...our 10-year-old plant is only 72" tall...rare in commercial trade.
