Siberian carpet cypress
Microbiota decussata

The Siberian carpet cypress, also known as Russian Arborvitae, is a wonderful ground hugging shrub. A native of Siberia, it is extremely hardy.

It gives a graceful, layered effect and is tolerant of some shade.

The evergreen "fronds" resemble certain junipers, and indeed this plant is a good substitute for junipers, which generally will not grow well in shade.

The green color gives way to an attractive bronze tone during the winter months.

Hardy to Zone 3.
