TINY Compact Fernleaf Cypress – Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Filicoides Compacta’

Regular price $8.99

A stunning gem for the miniature garden, shear it in late winter to keep its compact shape or just let it do what it does naturally: let its frond-like branches reach for the sky.

An unusual Hinoki for the miniature garden, fairy garden or railroad garden that can add a completely different texture to the mini landscape. The foliage looks like ferns. It can stand alone as a focal point or trim-away the bottom-most branches (at anytime) to make it look like a tree in miniature, (in this case, keep it sheared to keep the canopy-shape but shear it in late winter.) . A treat to grow.

Prune in late winter to keep it bushy.
