Sunny Swirl Hinoki Cypress

Bold texture and colorful foliage distinguish the narrow, upright, golden, Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Sunny Swirl’. Stiff, contorted branches with mahogany red bark contrast dramatically with the twisting, coarse, threadlike foliage. The unique foliage displays shades that vary from yellow to gold and even chartreuse toward the interior. Unusual cockscombs occasionally develop at the tips and add to the striking texture. Discovered at Iseli Nursery as a sport on C.o. ‘Torulosa’.
