Hello, I have a north-east facing corner under some trees and was thinking that this conifer would be a nice bright screen for some steps/wall that i want to cover up all year round - this corner does get some sun but only about 2 hours a day. Would this plant like these conditions?
Many thanks

Hi, Jo,
Cupressus macrocarpa 'Wilma' likes full sun so the site you are describing won't be suitable. Perhaps try an Advanced Search here on Shoot? Under plant type, choose 'conifers' and under 'Choose conditions', choose full shade or partial shade. You will get a list of conifers that can tolerate partial to full shade conditions.
All the best,
Kathy C
