Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Mikko' aka 'Snow'


This plant has very similar growth habits as Blue Fuzzy Dwarf, or even Baby Blue Chamaecyparis - much slower growth than Blue Fuzzy. Feathery foliage is light bluish-green and is tipped in bright white throughout the warmer times of year. Has almost a "frosted" appearance. White tips gradually fade as weather cools in the late fall, and is not present during the winter. Great choice for a variety of uses - accents, group plantings, can even be planted close together (3-4 ft) and trimmed for use as a hedge/border. Although you may lose some of the brilliant white tipping on the ends if steadily trimmed. Does best in locations where there is a little shade during the hot afternoons - can sometimes get scorched in direct, hot sun.
