False cypress

Chamaecyparis

Incomparable texture and color intensity make false cypress a valuable companion in mixed borders and perennial beds, as well as an attractive hedge or screen. The fanlike boughs hold long, soft needles that resemble filigreed lace or ferns. The upswept branches of Hinoki cypress look like a Japanese painting, while the Nootka false cypress features pendulous branches. Color range of the false cypress extends from blue-gray to deep green to gold. A moist, slightly acidic soil is ideal for these trees; they do not thrive in hot and dry or windy conditions.
