Chamaecyparis ( False Cypress ) is available in an almost endless variety of sizes, textures, colors, and shapes.

They make excellent accent plantings, and the larger cultivars also make very attractive specimen plantings as well. Most Chamaecyparis are very easy to keep & grow - and with little or no maintenance with regards to trimming, pruning, or shaping.
