Good points:Doesn’t set many cones. Cones weigh the foliage down and ruin the shape of the tree, and they also attract cockatoos.
Doesn’t produce male flowers (strobili), so there’s no pollen to worry asthma sufferers.

Care:They are also more tolerant of dry conditions than most other cypresses.They like a position in full sun, and prefer a slightly acid, well-drained soil, enriched with organic material such as well-rotted manure or compost.Keep plants mulched, and water well during dry spells.Conifers are sometimes attacked by fungal diseases and insects such as borers and weevils.
