Cupressus macrocarapa ‘Goldcrest’ is a very popular conifer with bright lime/yellow foliage and an upright narrow shape. In summer, its foliage is lemon scented particularly when cut or brushed.
Cypress trees can grow in pots as long as you place them in a sunny location with good air circulation. Potted cypresses also do best with consistent soil moisture. Check the soil moisture regularly and keep it moist but not heavily saturated. The soil should not be allowed to dry out completely.
