Golden Japanese Hinoki Cypress

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Aurea'

A distinctive, handsome tree with spreading, graceful branches. The cupped-shaped outer sprays & new foliage are warm, Rich Yellow, while interior and older foliage sport a Lush Green.

Attractive, Reddish-brown bark develops striking texture with age. 

EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE & EASY TO GROW.                                                      Needs no clipping to develop a wonderful form. In fact, it will look better left completely unclipped, so that its natural character can develop freely.
