Chamaecyparis ( False Cypress ) is available in an almost endless variety of sizes, textures, colors, and shapes. There are many Chamaecyparis cultivars that do quite well in semi shaded locations, and even a few that seem to prefer shadier spots - while others thrive in full sun. 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. So if you are in the mood for something just a little out of the ordinary, take a moment to check out some of the Chamaecyparis varieties we offer - you just might find that "certain something" you've been searching for.
