Gardeners' Notes:

I bought my first Hinoki Cypress about 8 years ago. It is now about 4 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide. I had to move it once. This is a truly lovely small tree or shrub that takes on a very Asian look as it grows. Pruning can enhance that effect. I have had it in full sun and part shade and nothing seems to bother it. Run your fingers through the branches from time to time to knock off any dead foliage. The plant will look gorgeous. It is rich deep green with lighter tips and is very full at the ends of the branches. I am now raising two more and they are very easy to grow. It is soft to touch and just seems to be amenable to any environment. I am USDA zone 5 and have good watering in my garden.
