This cultivar of the Common Balcypress, also called 'Michelson,' is a narrow, upright form that has denser foliage with a lime-green color. It is a Earl Cully introduction; a nurseryman of southwest Illinois who discovered the 'Heritage' River Birch. It is offered by some larger, diverse conventional nurseries in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and South of the US.
