Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Curly Top'


Overall Description


This has to be one of the oddest, most unique looking Chamaecyparis we have ever seen. It's foliage is a wonderful silvery pale blue color, and is completely "curly". It is very dense and compact, keeping a nice neat globe shape without pruning or trimming. Makes a great accent plant, as well as a good medium sized border plant. You just have to see this plant to appreciate its unique beauty.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
