Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cream Ball'

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs, Dwarf Conifers

Cream Ball Sawara Cypress

The unique color of the compact, Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Cream Ball’ is neither white nor yellow, but more a rich shade of cream, that will complement many landscapes. A close look at the foliage shows that a range of colors and textures, including bluish needles and green scales that are tipped with blond, contribute to the glowing effect. The well-mannered, easy-to-grow conifer maintains a uniform globe shape without shearing and makes a dressy accent or, lined up, an attractive border edge. More sun exposure will produce a brighter impact.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in part shade. Prefers moist, fertile soils. Avoid wet, poorly-drained soils. Shelter from strong winds. Pruning is rarely needed.
