Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Mariesii' aka ' Mariesii Hinoki Falsecypress'
( Larger / Standard Size )

Overall Description

Mariesii Chamaecyparis ( False Cypress ) is an unusual form of Hinoki Cypress. Has creamy white speckles that gradually mature to green. Best used as an accent for most landscape settings - seldom seen and a must for the avid conifer collector. Does best in full sun to partial shade. Prefers average to moist, well drained soil in a sunny, somewhat sheltered location. This form is a slightly larger, more open form of the semi-dwarf compact form - we propagate these from a branch sport reversion on one of our Compact Mariesii specimens.

Great for use as a small to medium sized specimen planting, accent planting, or to put in from of larger, taller conifers.

--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.
