Fernspray Gold Hinoki Cypress - Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Fernspray Gold'

Regular price $18.99

A favorite. This dainty looking Hinoki cypress is just a gem to grow in your miniature garden. The foliage changes throughout the year. In spring, it is a rich emerald green color, then the foliage turns a wonderful gold color when the plant is kept in full sun. In the winter, the tree blushes in an array of amber tones if the temperatures are cold enough - see the third photo for the winter colors.

The branches arch out in a whimsical way from the center of the tree, and it looks like a full-sized tree in miniature when the bottom branches are trimmed away to show some of the trunk. One of my favorite Hinokis.

Trim in late winter if you want to keep it bushy.
