Gimborn Beauty Hinoki Cypress - Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gimborn Beauty'

Regular price $18.99

New to our inventory this season (Spring, 2018) but we can't wait to see this gem grow up - because it looks so handsome! Right now, as shown in the photos, we are enjoying the winter blush on the juvenile foliage: subtle purples and gray-greens on the reddish-brown stems. As the Gimborn Beauty grows up, it will produce graceful spreading branches typical of adult Hinoki cypress that combined with the young foliage, will create a very unique texture.

This one is a little faster growing but with the occasional pruning to encourage that juvenile/adult foliage combination, we can slow down the growth rate for our miniature gardens. (Prune in mid to late winter.)

  • Juvenile foliage matures into a different texture
  • Broad upright in shape
  • Growth rate is 6" to 12" per year - can be pruned to slow it down
  • Sun to part shade
  • Evenly damp soil, don't let it dry out completely
  • Cold hardy zones 4 - 8
  • Heat hardy 8 thru 1
  • An outdoor plant
  • Comes in a 4" pot
