Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Blue Surprise'
An exceptional evergreen conifer, offering silvery blue foliage, complemented with a purplish cast during the winter months. This outstanding selection is resistant to Phytophthora lateralis, a disease that has caused the demise of many Chamaecyparis lawsonianas over the last two decades. Forms a dense, narrow spire, ideally used as a focal point in formal gardens or well positioned in shrub borders.
Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana 'Nova'
A fast-growing, narrowly conical specimen with bright yellow foliage that will reach roughly 6 feet tall with maturity.
Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Pearly Swirls'
Highly attractive with sprays of grey-green foliage tipped with cream coloring. Its unique pearly appearance persists throughout the year as the cream shoot tips slowly fade to a silvery-white. Has a fabulous rounded habit that forms a neat, compact sphere. Great in rockery gardens and large containers.
Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana 'Yvonne'
Flattened sprays of golden-yellow tipped green foliage in fall and winter add bright contrast to the landscape. This outstanding selection is resistant to Phytophthora lateralis, a disease that has caused the demise of many Chamaecyparis lawsonianas over the last two decades. Makes an excellent informal hedge or accent plant in a shrub border.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Butter Ball'
Bright, lemony-yellow tips on tightly congested foliage give this small, globose Hinoki a fresh, cheery look. The vivid coloring contrasts beautifully with naturally darker inner foliage. A consistently rounded habit & very slow growth distinguish this selection as superior to others. Prefers moist, well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Confucius'
Neat, feathery fans of foliage display a range of color, from bright lemon yellow on outer foliage to softer shades of yellow, gold & rich green on interior foliage. This reliable, intermediate-sized selection of golden Hinoki contributes a striking, full, upright form to any landscape.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Ellie B.'
This miniature Hinoki boasts tightly congested clusters of dense, dark-green foliage that take on distinctive bronzy tones in winter, making it a tasty garden treat accented with cinnamon-brown stems. Outstanding performance & very slow growth make it a desirable addition to rock garden, trough or container plantings.
Chamaecyparis Obtusa 'Fernspray Gold'
Classy, arching sprays of golden, fern-like foliage decorate this arresting tree. Each unique, flattened branch tapers to a point, just as a fern frond does. Give this intermediate-sized gem plenty of sun & ample moisture to achieve the brightest gold, but use caution in hot climates, where scorching afternoon sun may be too much.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides Compacta'
The delicate foliage on this stunning, upright tree looks more like fern fronds than typical Hinoki branches. Each arching, rich green branch tapers to a fine point, instead of the more usual cupped tip. Trees develop a handsome, open habit, so they stand out as focal points or combine nicely in an evergreen screen. Judicious pruning encourages a more compact shape, if desired. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis Obtusa 'Gemstone'
Dense and dramatic it displays an unusual blend of color and texture. Its tightly layered, green fans are alive with darker and lighter shades, and plants are so dense that a single specimen can lend extraordinary character to a small space. This garden nugget, a must-have for conifer connoisseurs, establishes an irregular upright form as it matures very slowly.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gracilis'
An open-branched, pyramidal form with gracefully arching branchlets. Tiny, deep green needles with reddish new growth have a soft, ferny appearance and develop bronze coloring in winter. An excellent small, slender evergreen tree for screening, hedges and background plantings.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Iseli Green'
This selection of the elegant Hinoki Cypress grows into a distinctive, handsome tree. Spreading, graceful branches display gently cupped sprays of dark green, scale-like leaves, marked with characteristic white crosshatches on the underside. Attractive reddish brown bark develops striking texture with age & irregular branching gives each tree a unique personality. Full sun, but tolerates some shade.
Chamaecyparis Obtusa 'Just Dandy'
This remarkable little Hinoki is the best of the best. Compact sprays of dense, finely textured foliage decorate the branches of the low, rounded, spreading plants. Such tight foliage is usually associated with miniature selections that have extremely slow growth, but this superior cultivar grows comparatively faster. It will reach the size of a beach ball within years instead of decades. Ultimately wider than tall, 'Just Dandy' contributes unparalleled grace and beauty to small spaces throughout the year.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Kosteri'
This well-known selection has enjoyed popularity for decades, since its introduction about 1915. Superior form, slow growth & shapely sprays of feathery, twisting foliage that cup gracefully downward account for its reputation. Maintains a compact rounded shape for several years before eventually developing into a broad, but tidy, dense pyramid. Hints of bronze accent the tiers of soft, muted green branches, especially in winter.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'mariesii'
Super fine, lacy foliage, generously accented with creamy speckles, creates a soft, frosted look that sets this cultivar apart. Versatile & adapts to both sunny & shady spots. With more sun, the accent color takes on richer, golden tones, but does not burn. With less sun, the accent is whiter & almost glows in the dark. Loosely globose when young, plants slowly become more upright & broad as they age. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Melody'
Lacy sprays of attractive lemon yellow foliage let this plant stand out in the garden. Narrow when young, it broadens with age. Winter brings bronze tones to the tips of the yellow foliage for a nice seasonal change. Tolerates full sun but flourishes in partial shade as well. Well-drained soil is a must.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana'
This tiny Hinoki, introduced in 1867, remains a highly regarded industry standard. Superior features explain the reason: tightly cupped fans of dark green, highly congested foliage form a dense, miniature mound that contributes beautifully to small-scale plantings, including rock gardens, troughs & container gardens. Reliable year-round performance & very slow growth.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis'
The most popular & well-known dwarf Hinoki Cypress. Has an irregularly globose form that develops an upright habit with age. Dense, extremely healthy, rich green cups of foliage suggest an elegant Japanese aesthetic. Slow growing, reliable structure for full to part sun.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Lutea'
This golden yellow selection has superior features & vibrant new growth. The compact, slow-growing bush has an irregularly globose form that develops into an upright broad habit as it ages. Dense, golden sprays of foliage become brighter in more open settings. A valuable option for year-round garden color, it prefers some protection from harsh summer sun.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Sunny Swirl'
Bold texture & colorful foliage distinguish this narrow, upright, golden selection. Stiff, contorted branches with mahogany red bark contrast dramatically with the twisting, threadlike foliage, which displays shades that vary from yellow to gold & even chartreuse toward the interior. Unusual cockscombs occasionally develop at the tips & add to the striking texture.
Chamaecyparis Obtusa 'Tetragona Aurea
A shrubby, asymmetrical specimen with ascending branches that flatten or slightly nod at the tips. Has fern-like foliage with exposed surfaces being an attractive bright gold color, while the shaded parts are species-typical green. The variegated effect is quite pleasing.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Angel Hair'
Very fine textured threadbranch foliage is displayed. With slow growth & thin foliage, it adds a light airy element to the garden.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cumulus'
Tufts of needle-like, juvenile foliage give this rounded, light-blue selection its airy character, even when mature. Named for a look like puffy clouds, this delicate choice adds a reliable element of soft texture to tight garden spaces. Stays small without pruning; its foliage is most dense when grown in full sun. Particularly useful for container, trough or rock gardens & other small sites.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Curly Tops'
The distinctive curly tips & silvery blue foliage of this selection add both texture & color to the landscape. The uniquely twisted needles show off a gleaming silver side & the dense, compact form works well wherever needed. Use it to line the drive or define a garden wall in a moist, well-drained site. Partial shade produces a richer blue.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Golden Mop'
The finely textured, sunny foliage of this winning "threadbranch" cypress develops vibrant new spring growth that retains its brilliance & shines in the garden all year. Well-behaved, compact & hardy, the low, mounding conifer makes a versatile addition to border, bank or foundation. It produces best color in full sun and performs even in areas challenged by heat and humidity.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Golden Pin Cushion'
For a handsome bit of color in the rock garden or other small space, this dense, golden cypress delivers. Prized as a close-up accent, especially to add an Asian aesthetic, each plant will spread slowly into a low, irregular mound that suggests moss. Where exposed to more sun, the foliage turns brighter yellow. Easy, resilient and hardy.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy'
This exceptional plant has tiny strands of feathery, white-tipped foliage that produce a fine, velvety texture. Visitors, drawn to the soft, rounded mound by its unique white color, can't resist reaching out and stroking it. It provides year-round color in the rock garden or trough & maintains its size without pruning. Growth tends to be more open in shadier sites, but plants prefer protection from scorching sun.
