Snow White is a mistress of 7 dwarfs but where are they? Perhaps at Oregon State University that bred a whole range of those dwarf or compact Lawson cypress varieties in 1980’s called The Guardian® Series. Snow White is a picturesque Lawson cypress selection with mid green or almost blue green colour and small, creamy white new growths that make it look as if covered with stardust. The leaves are tiny and the branches are soft to touch.

It grows slowly into a teardrop or conical shape and needs no pruning to be dense. Still, you can shape in any way you wish, best in April or in midsummer.

Lawson cypress prefers moist but well-drained, slightly acidic soil but is adaptable to almost all types of soil. Grow it in full sun or half shade either in a garden bed or in an outdoor pot. Fully hardy to about -28°C (USDA zone 5).
