Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy

White Pygmy Sawara Cypress.  Slow growing dwarf conifer, with about 2-4" of growth per year. Has a cute little round shaggy bun shape.  Finely textured soft feathery foliage is bright green with eye-catching white tips.  One of those plants you just can't resist touching.  Initial small size is perfect to add variety of size to miniature plantings, adding to the "realism" of the garden.  Small root ball is easy to plant and fits into small garden spaces, troughs and containers.  Needs good light, but protect from strong afternoon sun in summer.  Cold hardy to -20 to -10 F.  Plants are about 2.25" tall above a 2.25" x 2.25" x 3.5"h pot.  Fun for fairy/miniature gardens and easy to grow.
