Russian cypress is a hardy, low growing evergreen for sun or shade, but the species is often plagued with tip die-back. This new selection solves that as it has superior disease resistance and winter color. Celtic Pride's green foliage turns an attractive russet color in winter. This is an excellent, very cold-hardy plant with better shade tolerance than junipers.
Prefers well drained, moist soil. Pruning is seldom needed, but may be trimmed to shape in spring.
