Cupressus Macrocarpa ‘Goldcrest’ (Monterey Cypress)
Originating from California’s Central Coast, the Monterey Cypress is notably resistant to salt water and is highly prized in seaside areas. The ‘Goldcrest’ variety has delightful lime green foliage that works well as a centrepiece or bedded in. This conifer emits a pleasant lemon scent when cut or crushed and is fast growing. Very versatile, it can even be trained into an exquistive topiary form. Interestingly, in the summer, its scent will help deter mosquitos. A lovely and easily managed tree for the patio or garden.
