a very slow growing plant, 3" a year. Beautiful color when in direct morning sun, but protected from hot afternoon sun here in Seattle area. I know that deer also love this plant, so if you have a deer problem, steer clear of this one. my photos show the slow progression of how it develops from year to year.

My info is a bit different. A unique form of Hinoki Cypress displaying golden fern-like juvenile foliage on a mounding compact shrub. We found the foliage color is best in part shade. Growth rate is slow, only 3" or so a year. Ultimately a shrub of 4' x 4'
