Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides Compacta'

Compact Fernspray Cypress.  Bright green, soft, lacey foliage is pointed at the tips, like fern fronds.  Appeciated for its unique foliage and upright growth.  Plants have a broad upright habit/form in the garden.  Nice for adding height, texture and winter color to miniature gardens and fairy gardens.  Great choice for gardens with a woodland theme or northwestern feel.  Faster growing than miniature or dwarf conifers; can be transplanted if it outgrows its space with age.  Can be carefully pruned, to keep more compact, when pushing new growth in late spring/early summer.  Plants are growing in 3.5"h x 4"diameter pots.

  • Intermediate conifer, can grow 6-8" per year once established
  • Prefers moist, well-drained soil
  • Grow in full sun or light shade
  • Cold hardy to zone 5
  • Recommended for outdoor gardens only
