Lemon Cypress Texture
My Lemon Cypress gets a little water sprinkling daily, lives in direct sunlight. It's color is a beautiful green but it is stiff to the touch. Is this normal?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. If it does not have some bend, or the scales fall off when touching or bending, then it is likely dead or partially dead.
If there is some life to it, and the scales do not fall off when you bend the branch, then it can likely recover.
It sounds like overwatering could have led to an infection which may have killed off, or is killing the tree. They shouldn't be stiff or brittle.
