The Carolina Sapphire Cypress desktop Christmas tree maintains a tall and compact shape naturally. Drought tolerant, this tree only requires watering until established. This evergreen tree will be easy to grow with no extra work needed. Sapphire Cypress prefers full sun and does not require any special soil conditions. You can also choose to only plant 1 of these trees as a focal point or to provide an accent next to your home or as a desktop Christmas tree in your workspace.
Be sure to choose the best location for your desktop Christmas tree. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant this tree almost any time of the year.
They thrive in full sun to part sun and can adapt to any soil that is well drained. They do like a neutral to acidic soil so if you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer (most fertilizers for evergreens are acidic). After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist and cool. Water your Cypress tree deeply a couple times a week for the first few months after planting. After your tree is established, they only need water during hot, dry spells. These trees rarely need pruning.
These trees rarely encounter issues with pests or disease. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. It is important to avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues in your Sapphire Cypress desktop Christmas tree. Our Red Christmas Cactus is also a great option.
