Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Fernspray Gold'

Fernspray Gold Hinoki Cypress.  Unique form and outstanding color for fairy/miniature gardens, little landscapes and conifer collections.  Tips of the stems come to points, like fern fronds, for an elegant layered look.  Vivid yellow color stands out against the many shades of green in the garden. Remains evergreen, providing structure and year-round interest for miniature gardens and plantings.  Young small plants will fit in little landscapes and can be transplanted once they outgrow their space. Makes a striking accent or focal point in gardens of any size.  Cold hardy to zone 5; in hot climates, may need some afteernoon shade to prevent scortching.  Plants are growing in 2.25" x 2.25" x 3.5"h pots.
