    Features

    Looking for an evergreen groundcover with delicate good looks but tough-as-nails performance? Try Celtic Pride Siberian cypress.

    Its pretty fern-like foliage belies its durable nature. This plant is super hardy (down to USDA zone 2), tolerates light shade, tolerates dry conditions, and is untouched by deer. In winter, the plant takes on a russet-purple tone. Celtic Pride microbiota was selected for its uniform growth and resistance to the tip dieback that often plagues conventional varieties. 

    Top reasons to grow Celtic Pride Siberian cypress:

    - Groundcover shrub transforms areas into a lush evergreen carpet

    - Super hardy: true to its name "Siberian cypress," it can easily live in very cold climates

    - Deer resistant

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • 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
