Siberian Cypress - Microbiota decussata

Regular price $19.99

The Siberian Cypress is a promising candidate for the miniature garden because it’s really a ground cover. This shrub grows to about one foot tall then it will start to grow prostrate (sideways,) and while its doing so, we can enjoy it in the miniature garden.

The feathery foliage turns bright green in the summer, shown in the first three photos, and a bronzy purple in colder areas in the winter, shown in the fourth photo.

A perfect substitute for a Juniper as it enjoys the same conditions and, as its name implies, it is VERY hardy. Apparently it does well in poor soil and windy areas too - but make sure the soil is well-drained.

  • Pretty, lacy foliage
