Chamaecyparis nootkatensis 'Jubilee' Weeping 5 Large Green This distinctive selection of Weeping Alaskan Cedar grows into an extremely narrow form with deep, rich green foliage. With age, the fast-growing trees develop fascinating character, almost personalities. Each has an upright, spire-like main trunk and gracefully draping branches that look like arms. The majestic tree produces secondary sub-leaders, forming a grove-like cluster of uprights.
Chamaecyparis nootkatensis 'Strict Weeping' Weeping 5 Large Green The foliage on this tall, extremely narrow Weeping Alaskan Cedar boasts an uncommonly pendulous habit.  The draping foliage hangs down, clasped tightly against the upright trunk, like arms. Mature trees develop fascinating character, almost personalities, with secondary sub-leaders that reach out and create a close-knit cluster of trunks and gracefully arching side branches. 
Chamaecyparis obtusa  Broad Upright  5 Large Green 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, and irregular branching gives each tree a unique personality. Native to Japan. Full sun, but tolerates some shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Aurea' Broad Upright  5 Large Yellow This full size Hinoki is the golden version of the species, a distinctive, handsome tree with spreading, graceful branches. The well-cupped outer sprays and new foliage of this naturally irregular conifer are warm, rich yellow, while interior and older foliage sport a medium green. Attractive, reddish brown bark develops striking texture with age.  Prefers moist, well-drained soil with afternoon shade in the summer.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Baldwin Variegated' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green/Yellow This variegated sport of the popular 'Nana Gracilis' displays creamy-white foliage in random arrangements. On one plant, some of the thick, cupped sprays of foliage will be entirely creamy, and some will be completely green; others will be dusted with flecks of white. With such unusual coloration and the distinctive Hinoki form, this small, slow-growing tree makes a striking garden feature. Grow in moist, well-drained soil with protection from harsh afternoon sun. Selected by Joel Spingarn from Baldwin, Long Island, New York.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Blue Feathers' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Bluish Green This plant is soft in form as well as texture. Tiers of feathery downy-looking foliage on an upright broad habit give a "warm fuzzy" feeling to the garden. Typical obtusa juvenile growth is a muted blue. With age, however, adult foliage begins to appear at the ends of the branches. This piece of art deserves a prominent place in the landscape.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Butter Ball' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf Yellow 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 and very slow growth distinguish this selection as superior to others. Prefers moist, well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Chirimen' Narrow Upright  5 Dwarf Bluish Green The fascinating foliage of this new Japanese selection displays multiple textures and colors.  That explains the name, 'Chirimen', which is a dyed crepe fabric traditionally made from silk and used for making kimonos.  Each narrow, upright tree becomes a cluster of thick, upright shoots that resemble bottlebrushes, with both juvenile and adult foliage in shades of blue and green.  The effect is striking and unusual for a Hinoki cultivar.  Use this textural accent where the crinkly, congested foliage will stand out.  Requires perfect drainage; sometimes mistakenly listed as 'Chairman'.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Confucius' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Yellow Neat, feathery fans of foliage display a range of color, from bright lemon yellow on outer foliage to softer shades of yellow, gold, and rich green on interior foliage. This reliable, intermediate-sized selection of golden Hinoki stays smaller than Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Aurea,' and it contributes a striking, full, upright form to any landscape.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Dainty Doll' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green This charming, slow-growing dwarf Hinoki Cypress sports rich green foliage and a low, rounded habit when young. As it matures, the plant spreads into an intriguing, irregular form that becomes wider than tall. Lacy foliage and unique character make 'Dainty Doll' an excellent option for highlighting small spaces, including rock gardens and containers, where its character can show.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Ellie B.' Broad Upright  5 Miniature Green 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. Similar to 'Nana,' but with a more upright habit and a slightly smaller scale, the outstanding performance and very slow growth of 'Ellie B.' make it a desirable addition to rock garden, trough or container plantings. This seedling selection was raised by Joel Spingarn of Baldwin, Long Island, New York.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Fernspray Gold' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Yellow 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 and ample moisture to achieve the brightest gold, but use caution in hot climates, where scorching afternoon sun may be too much. Originally from Duncan and Davies, New Zealand.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides Compacta' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Green 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 'Flabelliformis' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green The emerald green dwarf Hinoki cultivar 'Flabelliformis' offers a choice midway between the familiar, rounded 'Nana Gracilis' which sports tighter, denser sprays of foliage and the larger tree form of the species which produces looser, flatter fans. The gently twisting, more open display of slightly down-facing foliage gives this very slow-growing plant an airy quality. It maintains an attractive, irregularly conical small stature.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gemstone' Narrow Upright  5 Dwarf Green Dense and dramatic, this fantastic new cultivar, selected at Iseli Nursery from thousands of 'Nana Gracilis' seedlings, 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 'Gimborn Beauty' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Bluish Green 'Gimborn Beauty' produces the graceful spreading branches, attractive reddish brown bark, and large, upright habit of the species. Its color and texture are unique, though. Feathery, blue, juvenile-type foliage complements elegant sprays of typical adult foliage. The combination gives the tree a softer look, which occasional pruning encourages. Eventually, the familiar gray green, scale-like foliage dominates this beautiful alternative to full size, green Hinoki selections.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gnome' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Green The rich, deep green foliage on this elfin Hinoki is so dense and congested that the familiar fan-like growth seems more like knuckles, making the plant look like a smooth, rounded rock. Extremely slow growth assures that this tiny gem will not outgrow even the smallest spaces in rock garden, trough or container.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Golden Fern' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow An interesting reversal between young and old warrants a close look at the foliage of this colorful Hinoki. The bright yellow, fern-like tips are characteristic of more mature foliage, resembling filled-out fans that curve gently downward. The inner growth looks more like powder blue juvenile foliage, the opposite of what you might expect. This striking, slow growing sport from 'Fernspray Gold' has a pyramidal habit and appreciates protection from extremes. Best in well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Golden Nymph' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow Reminiscent of the irregular, open habit of dwarf Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Contorta', this choice selection displays cupped, cheery yellow foliage and a breezy upright stature. Plants are quite narrow and consistently compact with a look that suggests a sculpture made of sunlit clouds. Yellow tips become rich bronze in winter. Selected as a seedling by Henry Weissenberger.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Golden Sprite' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Yellow Our smallest golden Hinoki, this true miniature grows very slowly into a tight, somewhat irregular dome of congested foliage over many years.  Closely-held fans develop bright yellow tips, with brighter color in sunnier positions, although trees will tolerate some shade. Perfect for rock garden, trough or other container for close-up viewing. Prefers moist, well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Goldilocks' Broad Upright  5 Large Yellow This exciting new selection of Hinoki displays a denser, more refined and more uniform stature than the standard yellow Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Aurea'. Its zippy, lemon yellow color is exceptionally bright, and its strong, straight central leader and sturdy trunk make it a desirable garden plant.  Site this tree where there is room for a large, dramatic conifer.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Graciosa' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Green Uniform sprays of lacy foliage characterize this outstanding sport of 'Nana Gracilis'. The consistent shape, attractive texture and ascending branching make it a superior garden tree that will contribute year-round character to formal and informal gardens, especially wherever a Japanese aesthetic is desired. Bright, new foliage accents the mature foliage in spring. A superior choice since its introduction in 1935.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Greenstone' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Green This bright green micro-miniature ball could be mistaken for a garden stepping stone. Selected and propagated from 50,000 'Nana Gracilis' seedlings in 1982, it has Barbie doll-sized fans of foliage that you just can't resist reaching down to pet. Extremely slow growth, fine texture and proper scale make it the perfect choice for miniature theme gardens and other tablescapes. Formerly listed as [E1 Iseli Evaluator], we're sold on this one and think you will be too.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'J.R.' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Green The rich green sprays of foliage on this seedling selection introduced and named for Joe Reis of Long Island, New York, are so tiny, dense and congested that the plant resembles a smooth, green rock. It grows extremely slowly into a rounded, slightly upright form that spreads out with age, ultimately becoming wider than tall. Sometimes mispronounced "Junior", 'J.R.' is a tiny gem that will not outgrow even the smallest space in rock garden, trough or container. Very similar to Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gnome'.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Jade' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Green This elegant, full-size tree is a significantly improved form of Chamaecyparis obtusa. In addition to fuller fans, thicker adult scales and a brighter green hue, it is more consistent, tapering into an attractive, conical tree that will lend sophistication to many garden settings. The full, fan-like sprays of ruffled green foliage cloak the trunk and stems, contributing to the superiority of this sturdy selection. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Jane's Jewel' Broad Upright 5 Dwarf Green Globe-shaped when young, this one-of-a-kind seedling was selected for its very slow growth and individual sculptural forms, which develop over many years. With fans of foliage on upright branches, this jewel is ideal for container gardens, rock gardens or any small pretty place where attention to detail is desired. Grow in full sun with moist, well-drained soil for best results.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Jean Iseli' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Green Sculptural, superfine, and fun. This charming miniature Hinoki 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.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Just Dandy' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf Green This remarkable little Hinoki, selected from amoung thousands of seedlings of Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' in 1981, 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' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green This well-known selection has enjoyed popularity for decades, since its introduction about 1915. Superior form, slow growth and shapely sprays of feathery, twisting foliage that cups gracefully downward account for its reputation. 'Kosteri' 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. 'Kosteri' benefits from some winter protection if grown in a container.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Lemon Twist' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow You gotta love 'Lemon Twist', Its unusual, kinky foliage displays zesty yellow tips, producing a striking effect against the red bark of the stems. Some of the short, twisted branch tips become cristate, eventually developing flattened, curved cockscombs that spiral back on themselves. The somewhat open, rounded form grows as wide as tall. This colorful sport of 'Tsatsumi' was selected at Bucholz & Bucholz in Gaston, Oregon. Prefers moist, well-drained soil with afternoon shade in the summer.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Little John' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green The outstanding character of this irregular, upright Hinoki cultivar comes from a combination of foliage types. Some of it is tight sprays of congested, twisting fans that cup gracefully downward, and some of it is longer, more open shoots with red stems that reach up and out. Bronze winter tones add seasonal interest to this jolly fellow from Robin Hood's Merry Men.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Marian' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow Slim, upright and shapely, this maid from Sherwood Forest stands out against darker shades in the garden with cool fans of soft yellow foliage that swirl and dance about. The open, delicate habit displays twisting, reddish stems that suggest a refined character with an adventerous spirit. Charming, slow-growing and comfortable in partial shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Mariesii' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf Green/White Super fine, lacy foliage, generously accented with creamy speckles, creates a soft, frosted look that sets this cultivar apart. It is also versatile and adapts to both sunny and shady spots. With more sun, the accent color takes on richer, golden tones, but does not burn. With less sun, the accent is whiter and almost glows in the dark. Loosely globose when young, plants slowly become more upright and broad as they age. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Maureen' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green This selection is a beautiful, compact, lacy green mound and will remain low, spreading in time to be much wider than tall. The rich green foliage adds a delightful  texture to this premium new offering. Excellent when featured in a quality container ro in the well-drained rock garden. Depending on local climate, full sun to partial afternoon shade are best.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Meroke Twin' Narrow Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow Cool cups of foliage lend movement and individual character to this narrow, upright golden Hinoki. Bright gold-over-green foliage is especially showy in the winter garden, but striking and useful throughout the year. Use in tighter landscape spots where plants will get some sun to promote the lighter tips and get some shade to filter the harshest rays of summer. Prefers moist, well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Mhondoro' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf Green The name means "spirit of the land" in Swahili, a reference to the cultural significance of forest trees around the world, including in Oregon, where this cultivar was discovered. Unique, finely textured, filament-like foliage creates an open, airy quality distinct from other small cultivars. The elegant, rounded tree grows very slowly and stays low and small. Use in container, trough or small setting where the refined beauty and strong spirit will grace the garden in every season.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Moonlight Lace' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Green/White Lacy sprays of foliage on this sport of 'Graciosa' display a light dusting of creamy-white variegation. Discovered at Iseli Nursery, 'Moonlight Lace' becomes a compact, conical tree with an open, layered habit. Beautiful texture and restrained variegation contribute a Japanese aesthetic and a bit of bright. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana' Globe Shaped 5 Miniature Green 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 and container gardens. Reliable year-round performance and very slow growth assure that 'Nana' will retain its claim to fame.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green The most popular and well-known dwarf Hinoki Cypress, 'Nana Gracilis' 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' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow This golden yellow selection has the same superior features as 'Nana Gracilis' and 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 'Pygmaea Aurescens' Globose 5 Intermediate Green Like many Hinokis, this selection is healthy and hardy, sturdy and reliable. Unlike most forms, though, this one spreads out horizontally and contributes attractive colors that change with the seasons. Young plants resemble open nests, wider than tall, and they attain a substantial spread as branches reach out in all directions. The foliage exhibits rich colors, unusual for conifers, changing from bronze-green during spring and summer to orange copper in fall and winter. The bark of individual branches displays a rusty coral color too. Use 'Pygmaea Aurescens' to accent an elevated knoll or bank, or site it as a ground-covering foreground plant.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Pyramidalis Nana' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green A distinctive selection of dwarf Hinoki Cypress, 'Pyramidalis Nana' develops a unique irregular form that suggests sculptural art in the garden. Congested tufts of dark green foliage twist and turn on short, upright branches. Characteristic blue criss-crosses on foliage undersides lend extra visual interest. Each plant develops a one-of-a-kind personality that provides striking impact in small garden spaces.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Reis Dwarf' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green Branches of 'Reis Dwarf' emerge as long, kinky tendrils that resemble those of Chamaecyparis obtusa. They gradually fill out through spring and summer, taking on sculptural forms that look like crooked, upstretched arms, each one adorned with compact, medium green fans of foliage. This selection responds well to selective pruning to accentuate its artistic shape. Selected by Joe Reis, Long Island, New York.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Snowkist' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green/White Touches of creamy white variegation, like frost, appear where the sun hits this otherwise dark green Hinoki. The attractive dwarf selection exhibits the superior qualities of 'Nana Gracilis', but it grows more slowly and stays lower. Site 'Snowkist' where it will get plenty of sun and ample moisture for the richest color, but use caution in hot climates, where scorching afternoon sun may be too much.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Spiralis' Narrow Upright  5 Dwarf Green Few trees can claim the dramatic architectural quality of this incredible upright Hinoki. A striking narrow habit and attractive bark contribute to the beauty of each specimen. But it is the very dense, finely textured foliage naturally sculpted on spiraling branches that account for the awe factor. Slow growing and ideal for large courtyard containers, this choice selection has a delicate constitution that requires perfect conditions. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Sunny Swirl' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow Bold texture and 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 and even chartreuse toward the interior. Unusual cockscombs occasionally develop at the tips and add to the striking texture. Found at Iseli Nursery as a sport on Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Torulosa'.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Thoweil' Narrow Upright 5 Dwarf Green A slow grower, 'Thoweil' will make a great feature specimen in the garden when creatively placed for 360° viewing. Its small, deep green foliage and naturally sculpted narrow upright habit make it a unique and stately addition to the garden. Alone in a container, it may be a featured patio specimen.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Tsatsumi' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Green Narrow, threadlike foliage—with plenty of fasciations—twists and curls, exposing crooked mahogany branches. Rounded when young, 'Tsatsumi' develops more height and more texture as it ages, while maintaining its compact form and fine foliage. An excellent selection for a highly visible spot in the rock garden or smaller landscape, where a unique accent is warranted.
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Verdoni' Broad Upright  5 Dwarf Yellow Clean, bright yellow fans of dense foliage decorate this dependable, mid-size Hinoki. Each tree develops slowly into a unique, naturally irregular, compact pyramid with a softly drooping leader. New foliage and stems display hints of orange. Trees resemble Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Aurea', but they are smaller and exhibit good tolerance to sun in most climates.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Blue Moon' Globe Shaped 4 Dwarf Blue The bright steel blue foliage adds a special color element to the garden, featuring short stiff branches covered with juvenile foliage that develop into a tight, compact ball with minimal shearing required to maintain its tidy form. ‘Blue Moon’ can be planted as a single color accent or in groupings for bright blocks of color. An excellent choice for foundation plantings also. Grows best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Boulevard' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Blue This popular, silvery blue tree boasts soft, plumy foliage and a full, pyramidal habit with somewhat open branching. In its natural form, 'Boulevard' makes a colorful backdrop for other plants or an excellent choice for filling a corner or screening a view. And, since it responds well to training and shearing, a well-sculpted specimen becomes an exquisite focal point in the formal garden. Discovered as a sport on Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Squarrosa'.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cream Ball' Globe Shaped 4 Dwarf Yellow The unique color of this compact ball, neither white nor yellow, is truly cream, a soft, rich shade that will complement many landscapes. A close look at the foliage shows that a range of colors and textures, including bluish needles and green scales that are tipped with blond, contribute to the glowing effect. The well-mannered, easy-to-grow conifer maintains a uniform globe shape without shearing and makes a dressy accent or, lined up, an attractive border edge. More sun produces a brighter look.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cumulus' Globe Shaped 4 Miniature Bluish Green Tufts of needle-like, juvenile foliage give this rounded, light-blue selection of 'Tsukumo' 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. 'Cumulus' stays small without pruning; its foliage is most dense when grown in full sun. Particularly useful for container, trough or rock gardens and other small sites.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Curly Tops' Broad Upright  5 Intermediate Blue The distinctive curly tips and silvery blue foliage of this selection add both texture and color to the landscape. The uniquely twisted needles show off a gleaming silver side, and the dense, compact form works well wherever a more rounded version of 'Boulevard' is 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 'Fairy Puff' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf White Light and fluffy, 'Fairy Puff' looks to be perfectly suited to entice the fairies into any small garden. This cultivar was discovered as a puff of juvenille foliage growing as a sport on 'White Pygmy'. White tips on very light green foliage have an extremely soft texture, both visually, and to the touch. Light shearing will promote a tighter form with lots of brightly colored juvenille foliage. Excellent for use in mainature theme gardens.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera' Globe Shaped 4 Intermediate Green The long, fine foliage, narrow, pendulous stems and irregular mounding habit make this selection a compelling garden accent. The scale-like foliage, a fresh green in spring, takes on softer tones in winter and complements the reddish brown bark. Over time, trees develop a compact, pyramidal form that makes them excellent candidates for sculpting. Hardy and adaptable to both cold and warmer climates.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Aureovariegata' Globe Shaped 4 Intermediate Green/Yellow Wherever it is used, the long, fine foliage of this variegated "threadbranch" selection brightens the landscape in every season. Splashes of creamy-yellow foliage appear randomly and tastefully on the overlapping, pendulous, green branchlets. The easy-care, mid-size conifer, similar in shape and size to 'Filifera', develops an attractive, mounding form that is easily maintained with pruning.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Golden Pin Cushion' Globe Shaped 4 Dwarf Yellow 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 'Golden Mop' Globe Shaped 4 Dwarf Yellow The finely textured, sunny foliage of this winning "threadbranch" cypress develops vibrant new spring growth that retains its brilliance and shines in the garden all year. Well-behaved, compact and 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 'Plumosa Juniperoides' Broad Upright  4 Intermediate Yellow This outstanding compact cultivar stays bright all year long and makes a bold statement in the landscape. Beautiful feathery branches of creamy yellow foliage grow slowly and develop into teardrop-shaped trees that make great golden hedges, screens and central features. Bright new spring growth gradually softens to warm gold in winter. A reliable, resilient choice for full sun.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Squarrosa Intermedia' Broad Upright  4 Intermediate Bluish Green Use this fast-growing conifer to make outstanding, creative plant sculptures. Trained as silvery blue elephants, bears, sea serpents or whacky shapes, the long, whiplike, feathery branches fill in with fluffy, needle-like foliage. Cultivated since 1923, the broad, upright shrub maintains a moderate size, but requires semi-annual pruning to redefine its billowy, irregular forms and encourage new blue growth. Use as a specimen, topiary or high interest addition to rock garden, foundation or mixed bed.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'True Blue' Broad Upright 5 Intermediate Blue For color and character, try this upright, mounding conifer with shimmering, soft textured, powder blue foliage. Its needles are held in a way that produces a dense, lush look, and its color will brighten any garden. Use 'True Blue' as a focal point, an accent or a backdrop to show off darker plants and contrasting textures. Responds well to shearing, making it a good candidate for topiary.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Tsukumo' Globe Shaped 4 Miniature Green For the smallest site, this tight, rounded bun almost doubles as a mossy green rock. It has dense, finely textured green foliage and grows so slowly that it won't outsize a trough or rock garden. The compact cushion, which is hardy, tough and resilient, is wider than it is tall. Occasionally, short feathery plumes will sprout out among the fine foliage, adding character and dimension to the tiny mound.
Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy' Globe Shaped 5 Dwarf White What a cutie. 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 and maintains its size without pruning. Growth tends to be more open in shadier sites, but plants prefer protection from scorching sun.
Chamaecyparis thyoides 'Heatherbun' Globe Shaped 4 Intermediate Green Unique winter color and fluffy texture distinguish this dense, compact shrub. Its fine, feathery foliage is heathery green during summer, but when winter hits, the charming, round-topped plant takes on intense tones of plum. The small, delicate bun responds well to regular shearing and thrives in wet sites, even tolerating less-than-perfect drainage.
Chamaecyparis thyoides 'Top Point' Narrow Upright  5 Dwarf Green A superior compact selection with interesting texture and a narrow habit, this upright conifer displays two types of foliage, both needle-like and scale-like. Muted green in summer, the versatile tree takes on a rich purple blush in winter. Use it in a large container, an entry courtyard or an intimate border. Provide even moisture for best results.
