Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Cumulus'

Cumulus Sawara Cypress.  The cutest little evergreen shrub with tiny blue-green needle-like foliage and a roly-poly round habit.  Named for its resemblance to the fluffy "happy cloud" formation.  Very slow grower - providing many years of character and 4-season interest.  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 fit into small garden spaces, troughs and containers.  Plants are about 2.5" tall above a 2.25" x 2.25" x 3.5"h " pot.  A selection of Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Tsukumo'.
