Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Mikko' aka 'Snow'
This plant has very similar growth habits as Blue Fuzzy Dwarf, or even Baby Blue Chamaecyparis - but does not grow as fast as Blue Fuzzy.....more of a moderate grower. Feathery foliage is light bluish-green and is tipped in bright white. Has almost a "frosted" appearance. White tips are observed during the warmer seasons, eventually fading as temps cool in late fall.......and then disappearing altogether during the winter months. 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.
