The lemony fragrance and golden yellow-to-chartreuse coloring of this Dwarf Evergreen make it an outstanding choice for containers.
- Indoors, Lemon Cypress should be close to a window where it will receive at least 6-8 hours a day of direct sun
- Plants prefer cooler indoor temperatures of 55-65°F. Water when the top 1-2 inches of potting mix is dry to the touch. Be sure not to over water, which can lead to problems with root rot
- Fertilize just once a year, in early spring, using a balanced fertilizer with a 10-10-10 formula
- Lemon Cypress can spend the summer outdoors in a sunny location. If you live in Zone 7 (like Little Rock) or warmer, you can grow it outdoors year round. Move it outdoors after danger of frost is past. If you wish to keep it in a container, repot every 4 years, using a fast-draining soil mixture.
