Chamaecyparis are evergreen trees, usually of narrowly ovoid or columnar outline, with much-branched sprays of small scale-like leaves, and small, globose cones; tiny red male cones are conspicuous in a few cultivars. ‘Sungold’ – slow-growing conifer, flattened, round shape, with filiform, curved, tightly growing branches. The thin, thread-like foliage held on stringy, weeping branches emerges golden-yellow before eventually maturing to a lime-green colour golden yellow. Needles maintain their colour, even in full sun. Extremely hardy, adapts to all soils, unless dry. Grows well in moist but well-drained soil. Tolerant of chalk soils but prefers slightly acidic soil.
