false cypress comes in All shapes and sizes. I've seen a 10yo 2ft high and a 6yo that was 10ft tall. There are HUNDREDS of varieties and it's all a bit hit and miss. However, you could help nature by buying a nice one in a pot and root pruning it every year to prevent it's EVER getting big? I've only seen it done once and the guy was a bonsai expert.
