Description:

Poodle form topiary; one of the most versatile evergreens, with countless cultivars in all shapes and sizes; the species is a typical spire-shaped evergreen with fine-textured foliage and interesting fibrous reddish bark

Ornamental Features:

Cyano-Viridis Poodle Form Falsecypress has attractive steel blue foliage with silver stripes. The scale-like leaves are ornamentally significant but remain steel blue through the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes:

Cyano-Viridis Poodle Form Falsecypress is an evergreen dwarf tree, selected and trained to grow in a small tree-like form with the primary plant grafted high atop a standard. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance dwarf tree. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Cyano-Viridis Poodle Form Falsecypress is ideal for use as a garden accent or patio feature, and is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • General Garden Use
  • Vertical Accent

Plant Characteristics:

Cyano-Viridis Poodle Form Falsecypress will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 1 feet from the ground. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.

This dwarf tree does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type, but has a definite preference for acidic soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
