The Hinoki Cypress is a slow-growing evergreen plant that is grown in zones 4-8. It can reach a size of up to 50 feet and is known for its beautiful, fragrant foliage.

Hinoki Cypress

Hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa) is a coniferous tree native to Japan. It is a popular choice for home gardens due to its attractive appearance, ease of care, and ability to thrive in a variety of growing conditions.

Hinoki cypress typically grows to a height of 50-75 feet and a width of 10-25 feet. It has a dense, pyramidal habit and glossy, dark green foliage. The bark is reddish-brown and peels off in thin strips. The cones are small and brown, about 1-2 inches long.

Hinoki cypress is relatively low-maintenance. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established. Water hinoki cypress regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize it once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

Hinoki cypress is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of ways in the landscape. It can be planted as a specimen plant, in groups, or in borders. It is also a good choice for growing in containers. Hinoki cypress can also be used to create hedges and screens.

Here are some additional tips for growing hinoki cypress:

  • Prune hinoki cypress in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased wood and to shape the plant as desired.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a 2-3 inch layer of organic mulch to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Protect hinoki cypress from deer and rabbits, which may damage the foliage.

With proper care, hinoki cypress can thrive for many years to come and add a touch of beauty to your landscape.

Here are some specific examples of how hinoki cypress can be used in the landscape:

  • As a specimen plant, hinoki cypress can be used to create a focal point in the garden. It can be planted in the center of a lawn, near a patio or deck, or in a prominent location along a walkway.
  • Hinoki cypress can also be planted in groups to create a stunning display of color and form. Groups of three to five plants are ideal for creating a bold and eye-catching focal point.
  • Hinoki cypress can also be used to create borders. When planted in a row, hinoki cypress can create a beautiful and elegant border that will add interest and definition to the landscape.
  • Hinoki cypress can also be grown in containers. This makes it a versatile option for patios, decks, and balconies. When growing hinoki cypress in a container, be sure to choose a pot that is large enough to accommodate the plant's mature size and that has drainage holes.

No matter how you choose to use it, hinoki cypress is a beautiful and versatile plant that will add a touch of beauty and elegance to your landscape.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
