Chamaecyparis (False Cypress)

The genus Chamaecyparis has numerous cultivars that offer a wide range of color, texture, and shape for nearly every landscape need. The species Chamaecyparis obtusa (commonly known as False or Hinoki Cypress) thrives in moist, well drained soil in full sun or partial shade and contributes sprays or fans of fine evergreen foliage to the landscape. Chamaecyparis pisifera (also known as Sawara Cypress) claims the best cold hardiness of the genus. Its cultivars thrive in full sun and contribute beautiful, feathery foliage to garden settings. Cham thyoides, also called White Cedar, does best in full sun where its foliage contributes outstanding color. Chamaecyparis grow native in North America, Japan and Taiwan.
