Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' is a slow-growing evergreen shrub that belongs to the family Cupressaceae. It is also commonly known as Dwarf Hinoki Cypress. This cultivar is a popular choice for gardeners looking for a low-maintenance plant with a compact growth habit that can fit in smaller gardens or containers. The 'Nana Gracilis' cultivar has a unique, pyramidal shape that reaches a height of 2-3 feet and a width of 1-2 feet at maturity. Its dense foliage is comprised of delicate, flattened sprays of feathery, blue-green needles that emerge in a tiered arrangement, giving it an elegant and refined look. The foliage of this cultivar emits a distinct, pleasant scent when crushed, which adds to its appeal. Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' thrives in a variety of growing conditions, but prefers moist, well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH. It is also relatively tolerant of full sun exposure, but will benefit from some protection in hotter climates. This cultivar is known to be relatively disease and pest-resistant, making it a great option for low-maintenance gardens.

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).
