This Sawara cypress originated in England in 1960, and was named Golden Mop. Yes, just like the wiping instrument which it truly resembles (yet a shaft is missing). Golden Mop is an evergreen conifer with weeping, thread-like, golden yellow branches. It grows moderately into a dense, mound-forming shrub when young, and more rounded and globular with age, and keeps its shape without pruning. It is suitable for growing in full sun provided the soil around is kept moist.

Sawara cypress prefers moist, slightly acid soil but is adaptable to most soil types provided it is well-drained. It can take strong frosts but dislikes extremely hot summers in dry soils, though, it loves full sun. Keep it mulched at all times to keep the soil most. No pruning is necessary but trimming can be done in early spring after all frosts. Never cut into old wood. Fully hardy to -34°C (USDA zone 4).
