This new vigorously growing introduction from Ohio's Seven Springs Nursery is a dwarf false cypress resembling C. 'Golden Mops', except with feather-like foliage instead of the thread-like foliage of C. 'Golden Mops'. Although our source indicates a mature height of only 30", we are quite skeptical that the plant will not actually get taller, but we shall all see together. Regardless, it should be beautiful when grown as a specimen in bright sun.
