Lawson’s Cypress Trees | Chamaecyparis lawsoniana

Lawson’s Cypress cultivars come in a variety of interesting shapes and foliage colours. They display flat, fern-like foliage, made up of scales rather than needles. Since being imported in 1854, Lawson’s Cypress have become some of the most popular conifers in Britain, commonly found in parks and domestic planting spaces.

Whilst renowned for reaching large heights in their native regions (up to 60m!), the ornamental Lawson's Cypress varieties we supply won't reach those heights in the UK climate. Many are dwarf or small-scale cultivars, ideal for planting in small gardens or modestly-sized landscaped areas. Some are even great candidates for being grown in a pot or planter. They're a particularly dense species which makes them great for screening purposes and they make a wonderful sanctuary for foraging birds, particularly finches.

Lawson Cypress trees are dioecious, meaning they produce male and female cones. These cones are fairly small, averaging around 1cm in diameter. They appear green in Spring and Summer months, before adopting a brown shade in the Autumn. The bark of Lawson Cypress usually ranges from red-brown to silver-brown in shades, becoming vertically fissured with age.

Our selection of trees are available in a variety of shapes including columnar and conical, as well as the wider, rounder spreads of the more shrubby varieties. They also vary in colour, from the vibrant gold of the Stardust variety to the silver-blue tones of the Pembury Blue.  The Snow White variety is particularly striking with it's icy-white tips creating the illusion of having been snow-kissed. Choosing a variety to match your planting scheme - or creating an impact with a colourful feature tree - certainly shouldn't be a problem

 

Interesting Facts About Lawson Cypress Trees

  • When crushed, the foliage of these trees smells like parsley
  • Though both the male and female cones develop in Spring, they don't actually become reproductively active until the following Spring
  • The thick and furrowed bark enables the species to survive moderate bush fires, which are often a threat in the dry, windy and hot Summer weather of their native California
