Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Kosteri'

Koster Hinoki Cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Kosteri’ is a well-known selection that has enjoyed popularity for decades. Superior form, slow growth and shapely sprays of feathery, twisting foliage 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.
