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.

With its soft, appealing texture and low-growing habit, this is a very nice plant for cold-climate landscapes. It's a good mass planting, and its tolerance of dry shade makes it a useful option. It's got good deer resistance, too!

  • I was very pleased with the 1 gallon plant--large and very healthy. The smaller size one is ridiculously small and over priced. And the postage was the same amount as the plant. I have been buying mail order plants for 20 years and this was the biggest disappointment ever, and has even prompted me for the first time to write a negative review.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

  • Love it! Put in part shade and it does great! Won't burn out in the center like juniper

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
