Cupressus macrocarpa 'Lemon crest' cypress
Common name: Monterey Cypress
Have you ever considered bringing a tree inside your home? Cypress trees are conifers that can make lovely houseplants if you give them the care they need. They want lots of light and to stay relatively moist, and will grow into the space that you give them so keeping them in smaller containers limits their size. Consider a cypress as a patio, entryway, or sunroom plant - somewhere they'll get plenty of the nutrients they need! Lemon crest is a joyful addition to any plant collection, bringing a bright lemony-lime shade that stands atop a beautiful woody stem. As a bonus, this cypress is a great option if you love the smell of fresh lemons.
Light: Bright Filtered - Bright
Pet Friendly: No
Care: The time to prune your cypress is late winter going into spring as the tree begins to move out of it's dormant season. This is when it will be most resilient. Always use sharp and disinfected pruning shears to minimize damage to the plant!
