Intermediate Sawara Cypress - Chameacyparis pisifera 'Squarrosa Intermedia'

Regular price $17.99

This Squarrosa Intermediate Cypress is an unexpected treat for the miniature garden. It is a little faster growing but it can be sheared to slow down the growth rate, or, leave it to grow into a miniature tree-form, and then trim it to keep it in check.

In the full-sized garden this plant is used for topiary, when the whip-like branches are trimmed annually, it will fill in with compressed, soft foliage.

Shear it at least twice a year, in the fall and again in the late spring, after the spring growth has flushed out to keep the canopy bushy and full.

  • Wonderful blue-green color
  • New growth is softer
  • Upright broad shape
  • Growth rate: 6" to 12" per year 
  • Can be trimmed to slow down the growth rate
  • Cold hardy Zones 4-8 or to -30F
  • Heat Zones 8-1 but avoid extremes to be safe
  • Full Sun, watch the hot summer sun if in a container
  • Regular water if in a pot, let dry out to just damp in between
  • Comes in a 4" pot
  • An outdoor plant
