Filip’s Happy Day is a chance seedling of Plumosa Compressa variety found in 2000. It is a dwarf, evergreen conifer with flat sprays of scale-like leaves which emerge fresh green with creamy white tips in spring. It grows very slowly and being quite new in the market – only since 2006 – it is difficult to estimate its ultimate size. Still, it is not expected to exceed 1m tall and wide.

This small shrub will be beautiful in small gardens and front yards as well as in borders with dwarf conifers and small-leaved evergreens, combined with attractive perennials of small sizes. Thanks to its rich emerald colour it will look great both in brown mulch and surrounded by light grey gravel.

False cypress prefers moist, slightly acidic soil but is adaptable to almost all types of soil. It can take strong frosts but dislikes extremely hot summers in dry soils. No pruning necessary. Fully hardy to -34°C (USDA zone 4).
