Gemstone Hinoki Cypress - Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Gemstone'

Regular price $18.99

This garden nugget is a must-have for the conifer connoisseurs and for the mini gardener - it's the same shape as the huge, life-sized cypresses that we see in the landscape. 

Shelter this gem from the hot afternoon sun in the summertime. It's so slow-growing compact, it may burn if the soil is left dry too long. Cool, eastern sun is perfect, or shade the container with a larger container.

Clean out the "conifer dieback" every spring and fall or whenever you see the brown foliage inside the tree. Part the branches every-so often to check.
