Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Boulevard' is a compact, slow-growing, densely pyramidal, coniferous, evergreen shrub with reddish, peeling bark, soft, silvery, needle-like, blue-grey foliage, tinged purple in winter and small, rounded cones. Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Boulevard' thrives in average, loamy, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, but can adapt to a wide range of soils. It can grow in full sun to partial shade, but prefers partial shade. It hates waterlogged soils. Resistant to heat and frost, and tolerant of exposed conditions. If exposed to the winter winds, its foliage may turn bronze. It has no serious disease or pest problems. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning, but it looks better if regularly sheared. Boulevard False Cypress is a popular and very good looking, slow-growing, architectural plant, perfect as a specimen or accent plant. Excellent for hedges and screens, mixed and shrub borders, foundation plantings, and rock and gravel gardens. Suitable for growing in containers.

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).
