Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Nana’ is a small, dense, bushy, rounded, coniferous, evergreen shrub with a shaggy mound of dark green, cord-like foliage of weeping appearance, reddish peeling bark and small, rounded cones on mature plants. Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera Nana’ grows best in average, fertile, slightly acidic, medium moisture, well-drained soils. It hates wet, poorly drained soil because it can cause a root rot. It thrives in partial shade, but can adapt to full sun. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winter winds. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Sawara cypress 'Filifera Nana', with its long, pendulous branches, is an attractive, decorative shrub that adds delicate texture to the landscape. It is great as an accent plant in small gardens or planted in rows to form a low hedge. Excellent as a groundcover, for beds and borders or foundation plantings. Good looking in 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).
