Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Fairy Puff'

Fairy Puff Sawara Cypress.  An enchanting variegated dwarf conifer to add year-round structure and interest.  Has soft feathery foliage, tipped in cream and changing to light green towards the center.  Slow growing, just 2-4" per year.  Keeps a nice fluffly round globe shape without pruning, but can be lightly trimmed to encourage a tighter habit.  Grow in sun to partial shade with well-drained soil.  Cold hardy to -20 to -10 F.  Great for miniature gardens and fairy gardens in the ground and in containers.  A sport of Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy' and a stand-out in the garden.  Plants are growing in pots 3.5"h x 4" diameter.
