Mini Cypress Tree Set: Thoweil, Butter Ball Hinoki & Tsukumo Sawara Cypress

Regular price $26.99

The trees in this set are outdoor trees and come in 2 1/4" pots as shown. They can be planted in full sun with good-draining soil. Let them dry out a bit in between watering sessions if they are grown in a container, to avoid over-watering.

The Tsukumo Sawara Cypress can tolerate a little more sun and drier soil than the other two Hinokis, but never let the soil dry out completely. Protect these trees from extremes while they are young - they are baby trees.

  • As a group, Heat hardy zones 6
  • Winter Maintenance: Clean out the dead leaves inside the shrubs when you see it.
  • Full sun - avoid that hot, summer afternoon sun while they are little
  • Let container soil dry out to barely damp in between watering
  • All are outdoor plants
  • Come in 2 1/4" pots
