Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Draht' is a small, slow-growing, upright, broadly conical, coniferous, evergreen shrub with sprays of short, scale-like, emerald green leaves, flushed bronze in winter, along twisted, wire-like branches. Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Draht' grows best in fertile, slightly acidic, consistently moist, well-drained soils, but can adapt to a wide range of soil types. It thrives in full sun but is tolerant of light shade. Yellow foliage might turn green in shade. It likes cooler climates. It is very resistant to frost and can withstand exposed positions. Resistant to urban pollution. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. It naturally maintains its compact shape. Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Draht' is a cute, dense, ornamental shrub, perfect as a specimen or accent plant. Excellent for flower beds, shrub and mixed borders, wall-side borders in informal, cottage, urban, and rock and gravel gardens. Suitable for growing in containers on patios and roof gardens. Great for bonsai making.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
