Lemon Cypress

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a fun Cinco de Mayo.
We're back from our trip to Savannah and will share the Inn where we stayed later on next week.

Wanted to share with you a wonderful plant called Lemon Cypress. And yes, it does smell lemony!

Awhile back I fell in love with Lemon Cypress at a local greenhouse, but couldn't bring myself to buy them because these small 18" tall plants were $19.99.

Ouch!





 While at Lowe's I came across a display of these beauties and had to bring 3 of them home with me. I paid only $14.99 each and they are 27" tall. Gotta love that!


 Two of them look great on either side of my newly painted planter on our deck.






Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Pam

  2. The look great on your deck. I have never seen them in planters before. I know them as tall trees. Round here they are often used as boarder trees, between properties. The are problematic in that there is a disease they get that is very contagious (between them), and once one of the trees gets it, they all do and die.
    So don't be tempted to plant it in your garden. Keep them small and on your porch.

  4. They look great Pam. I went to a neighbor's plant sale and bought camellias for three dollars. They are small but still.

  7. Hey Ruth, I had 3 Leyland Cypress that we removed because one caught a disease. Leylands grow really large quickly and are often used for borders or instead of fencing. These Lemon Cypress only grow 15 feet tall, but I'm going to keep them in pots and not going to plant them in the ground.

  8. I love lemon cypress! You got a really good deal on them. I found some at Home Depot last year, but they were much smaller. Yours look great on your porch.

    Have a great week.
