It says Chamaecyparis pisifera on the tag. It also says 6+ hrs a day of direct sun, but I wondered if it would live in dappled sun or even full shade? The tag says it gets 12ft tall and 12 ft wide, but when I did a google search I came up with all kinds of sizes. Does anyone have experience with this plant?

Hi Frillylily,

Sawara False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Gold Spangle') is an upright form of C. pisifera and per Mobot you can expect a very robust tree.

I have weeping shrub forms and they do best in full sun.

This is the paragraph that caught my eye at MOBOT Frilly.
‘Gold Spangle' is an upright broad-pyramidal form that features bright yellow thread-like foliage. It typically starts out as a low-growing shrubby plant, but will rise to 10-12' tall over the first 10-15 years, eventually maturing to as much as 25-35' tall.
