Boulevard Cypress-What will it do?

angieebertJuly 5, 2013

Hi all! I've just planted a Boulevard Cypress Poodle that is about 4 feet tall and has about 5 pom-poms on it. My question is what will this thing do in the future? I can't seem to find much info about them anywhere. What kind of growth can I expect from this thing? Will it branch out anymore with potential for more pom poms?

Also the guy at the nursery tried to convince me NOT to buy it, saying that they typically only live about two years after being planted (sounds like BS to me). Any shared experiences with these trees would be great!

Dead growth builds up on the inside and pretty soon it will look worse than good. In other words, it won't age well. Especially pruned into pompoms.
