Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides Compacta'

Fernleaf Hinoki Cypress

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. Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Filicoides Compacta’ will develop a handsome, open habit, and will stand out as a focal point or combine nicely in an evergreen screen. If desired, judicious pruning encourages a more compact shape. Grow in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade.
