Moonlit False Cypress - Chamaecyparis lawsoniana
“The moon was reigning over their world, glowing its full splendor to all those willing to look up.” — Irina Serban
This Moonlit False Cypress (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) was bred by Sunrise Greenhouses, to have a compact columnar form with silvery blue, prickly and soft needle like leaves.
Do you know when you crush the leaves, a fresh parsley aroma comes from it? It's not edible though, but it's great conversation starter with your holidays guests.
