Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Filip's Golden Tears' is a fantastic new selection of Lawson cypress. The tree's overall form is upright with all lateral branches strictly weeping; the branchlets are golden yellow, arranged in a delicate lacy pattern, typical of the species. Edwin Smits of Volkel, The Netherlands developed this cultivar in 1996 by crossing Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Dik's Weeping' x Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Stewartii'. He subsequently named this one, plus another 'Filip's Tearfull'. This one was selected as the American Conifer Society's Collectors' Conifer of the Year in 2019. After 10 years of growth, one can expect it to be 20 feet tall and 5 feet wide. Striking! Hardy to zone 5.
