The Story

Hinoki Cypress is a noble Japanese tree capable of living 1,000 years.  Its spicy-scented wood has been used in the construction of temples, shrines, and “Noh” theaters.  The tree is a favorite of bonsai enthusiasts, and of course, it makes an elegant addition to the landscape in any of its many renditions.  By the 1800s, the Japanese had several forms of Hinoki in cultivation, like this one, and after Japan finally opened its borders in the 1850s, gardeners in the West got to try them out in their own gardens.

The Details

Look no further, the evergreen on a stick you've been looking for is here! Literally, it's right here (look down). The dwarf bright green conifer with cup-shaped twisted foliage was literally grafted onto the trunk of another plant to give you this truly distinctive plant. It will literally change the way you look at your garden, literally.

How to Grow

Hinoki Cypress dislikes temperature extremes and requires moderation in moisture and sunlight, too.  Regular irrigation is appreciated, but standing water is a no-no, and light shade is the best kind of exposure.  Protect this plant from drying winds by planting it in a sheltered site.  Problems with this species are nearly always due to some cultural requirement not being met, rather than by an outside attack by any insect or disease.  As with all trees, look first to possible irrigation issue before assuming the plant has a disease.
