Russian Cypress (Microbiota decussata) is a low-growing evergreen shrub that is native to Siberia and other parts of northern Asia. It is also sometimes known as Siberian Cypress.
This plant typically grows to a height of 1-2 feet with a spread of 3-6 feet. Its foliage is a bright green color and forms a dense, spreading mat that hugs the ground. The plant produces small cones that are reddish-brown in color and can be a decorative feature.
Russian Cypress prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is a low-maintenance plant that requires little pruning or other care, making it a great choice for gardeners looking for an easy-to-care-for groundcover. It is also relatively drought-tolerant and can tolerate a wide range of soil types and growing conditions.
This shrub is often used in rock gardens, as a groundcover, or as a low border or edging plant. Its low-growing habit also makes it a great choice for planting on slopes or in other areas where erosion control is needed. The plant's attractive bright green color also makes it a great addition to gardens designed to provide year-round interest.Botanical Name: Microbiota decussata Common Name: Russian Cypress Foliage: Green Growing Zone: 3-7 Sunlight: Full Sun, Full Shade Size: 12" tall x 3-4' wide
