Cream Ball False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera Cream Ball’)

Cream Ball False Cypress

  • Great Foliage Color All Year
  • Low Growing – No Pruning Required
  • Great for Rock and Zen Gardens

Sometimes you want a plant to grow very quickly. You want it to shield a view or cover an eyesore fast. You might want it to fill in an empty spot in your border, like, yesterday.

But then, there are those times when you don’t want a fast grower. You want a plant that will look the same next year as the day you planted it. You want to know exactly what you’re getting right now. Maybe you have a rock or Zen garden that has a specific place that needs filled and there isn’t room for a big plant. Maybe you’re one of the millions of people who are enjoying the current “small garden” movement.

If any of the above fits you, then Cream Ball False Cypress is your perfect plant. With its size, you can fit it exactly where you want it and know that it won’t be gangly and out of bounds next year – or the year after – or really ever!

Cream Ball forms a round feathery mass of gray-green with blonde highlights all over. This evergreen is a perfect foil for darker green conifers and maroon-leaved perennials.

Cream Ball False Cypress has the form, the color and the size to add that wow-factor you are looking for right now!
