Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Chirimen'

Chirimen Hinoki Cypress.  A fascinating little tree/shrub with a picturesque habit and deep blue-green foliage.  Statuesque form creates a dramatic focal point for Asian inspired gardens, woodland gardens, and enchanted landscapes.  Develops with age into a mass of irregular branches of tightly held dense foliage.  Very eye-catching and intriguing.  Remains evergreen, providing structure and year-round interest for miniature gardens and plantings.  An outstanding variety and the Collector's Conifer of the Year for 2011.  Perfect for fairy gardens, miniature gardens, trough gardens and railroad gardens.
