Jean Iseli Hinoki Cypress

Sculptural, superfine, and fun, Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Jean Iseli’ is an appropriate namesake for dwarf conifer pioneer Jean Iseli. Its tightly pressed fans of foliage swirl and dance into an elegant upright sculpture that packs big impact into a tiny package. The refined, true green foliage and measured growth pay tribute to the character and vision of the early conifer aficionado. This selection, named in memory of Iseli by John Oliver, originated from ‘Nana Gracilis’ seed given to Oliver Nursery in 1981.
