Caring for Cypress Golden
- Drench the soil around the tree after planting and cover the root zone with 3 to 4 inches of organic mulch. Give the tree a good soaking every week for the first few months.
- Cypress trees need water most in spring when they enter a growth spurt and in fall just before they go dormant.
Typical uses of Cypress Golden
Special features: Species and large growing cultivars for lawn specimen, shrub borders and screen.
Ornamental use: Bald cypress has a tendency to form â€œknees,â€ which are pieces of root that grow above the ground in odd and sometimes mysterious shapes. Knees are more common for trees grown in water, and the deeper the water, the taller the knees.
