Where big impact meets ethereal aesthetics. Cedar Rapids false cypress grows to a useful screening height for folks living in two-story homes, but it keeps its lovely feathery texture no matter the size. Each fan of evergreen foliage is a cheerful lime green color and twists a bit, all combining to give the plant a unique texture. Its pyramidal habit makes a handsome specimen and looks commanding when grouped in a line for a hedge or screen.
