Gemstone Hinoki Cypress

Dense and dramatic, Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Gemstone’, 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.
