How To Care

The Gold Mop Cypress is called a scale-leaf evergreen because its foliage consists of flattened, threadlike needles that twist around the thin branches like fragile scales. It's ideal to prune this shrub early in springtime, just before new growth shows up. This permits new growth to cover up pruning marks quickly, staying clear of the appearance of cut branches, and likewise offers the plant a full season to recover from the shock of pruning. You can do fine-tuning of your Gold Mop's shape later on, in May, June or July, while the plant is still actively growing. Stay clear of cutting the shrub back in late summer or fall, due to the fact that tender new growth might be damaged by winter cold.

Cut each branch on your Gold Mop Cypress back to a strong lateral branch or shoot, choosing a length that approximates the final desired size of the shrub. See to it all cuts are made at a point where there's still green foliage as well as noticeable buds, and protect yourself against spread of plant disease by cleaning your pruning blades with a clean fabric and rubbing alcohol to sterilize between cuts.
