The Story

Boulevard Falsecypress is a dwarf version of the majestic Sawara Falsecypress, a large evergreen forest tree native to Japan. Sawara Falsecypress was once considered a sacred tree in Japan, and its lumber has been used in building many holy shrines and temples there. This compact, frosty blue-green rendition of the Sawara Tree originated in the U.S. around 1934 at Boulevard Nurseries in Newport, Rhode Island. Today Boulevard Falsecypress Trees and Oriental Pompom Topiary Trees are loved all over the world for their cool blue-green color and the delightfully soft texture of their foliage. Tree expert Michael Dirr describes Boulevard Falsecypress as having “the feel of a soft fluffy stuffed animal.” We’d have to agree!

The Details

Pruning Boulevard Falsecypress into an Oriental Pompom Topiary Tree not only highlights the cloudlike quality of its dreamy silver-blue foliage, but also puts more of its rugged, peeling, ruddy brown bark on display. The contrast between these hard and soft elements will add powerful visual appeal to your landscape all year long.

Questions & Answers

Q: If the Pom Poms are pruned several times a year to keep them nice, will the Cypress still continue to grow taller?

A: No, the Boulevard Cypress will not grow taller beyond the growth of the top topiaried ball size increasing.

Q: How often and when do you recommend that I prune to keep the shape the Boulevard has when I received it? 

A: Generally, the Boulevard Cypress requires, at most, two pruning sessions a year. Our Growers recommend the first be completed during the Spring growth flush and the second, if you so desire, should be done by the end of Summer. Please avoid any pruning during Fall or Winter - that could potentially damage your plant as the cold weather arrives.
