Elwoodii Snow White and Elwoodii Gold
Elwoodii Snow White
Chamaecyparis lawsoniana ‘Snow White’ has cream-white tips in both the spring and late autumn, initiated by colder temperatures. Though strong sunlight and high temperature do not scorch the white tips, they are cause a slightly greener appearance.
A variegated conifer with foliage sprays, pendulous at their tips, in shades of yellow and green. This is a most attractive, graceful feature. At a distance, the tree is seen as a light yellowed green shade. Because of the subtlety of its foliage, it deserves a place where it can be viewed, hence a position near a sitting area is recommended rather than treating it as an isolated specimen. The fruity odour of the crushed foliage is an added attraction.
