Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Melody'

Melody Hinoki Cypress

Lacy sprays of attractive lemon yellow foliage let the special Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Melody’ stand out in the garden. Found as a sport on C.o. ‘Graciosa’, it is slower growing than its parent. Narrow when young, it broadens with age. Winter brings bronze tones to the tips of the yellow foliage for a nice seasonal change. Tolerates full sun but flourishes in partial shade as well. Well-drained soil is a must.
