Chamaecyparis (False Cypress)

The genus Chamaecyparis, referred to as a false cypress, is native to Japan, Taiwan, and North America. This group has numerous cultivars spanning many different species that offer an incredible range of color, texture, and habit. Most notably from Iseli Nursery, the species Chamaecyparis obtusa (Hinoki cypress) thrives in moist, well drained soil in full sun or partial shade and contributes beautifully textured fans of fine evergreen foliage to the landscape. Chamaecyparis pisifera (Sawara cypress) claims the best overall cold hardiness of the genus. These cultivars thrive in full sun and contribute feathery, scale-like foliage to garden settings. Iseli Nursery also grows cultivars from Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (Lawson cypress), Chamaecyparis nootkatensis (weeping Alaskan cedar), and Chamaecyparis thyoides (white cedar). Needless to say, this versatile group of conifers has been incredibly important to Iseli Nursery.
