The Compact Hinoki Cypress, scientifically known as Chamaecyparis obtusa, is a miniature marvel that captures the essence of Japanese artistry in the form of a living masterpiece. This enchanting evergreen is renowned for its graceful, fine-textured foliage and a pleasing aroma that fills the air.

  • Versatile: This versatile evergreen can thrive in various settings, from traditional gardens to contemporary landscapes. It's equally at home in containers or as a striking focal point in your garden design.

  • Low Maintenance: Minimal care is required, making it an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced gardeners. With a slow growth rate, this cypress is easy to manage.

Growing Zones:

The Compact Hinoki Cypress thrives in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8. This range covers a significant portion of the United States, making it accessible to gardeners in a variety of regions. Whether you're in the Pacific Northwest or the East Coast, this cypress is an excellent choice for your garden.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Sunlight: Plant your Compact Hinoki Cypress in a location that receives partial to full sun. Ensure it gets at least 6 hours of sunlight daily for the best growth and color.

  2. Well-Drained Soil: These cypresses prefer well-drained soil that's slightly acidic. Amending your soil with organic matter can improve drainage and provide essential nutrients.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, especially during hot and dry spells.

  4. Pruning: To maintain its compact shape, occasional pruning is necessary. Trim back wayward branches or shape the tree according to your preference. Prune in late winter or early spring.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Compact Hinoki Cypress with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring. Follow the package instructions for proper application.

  6. Protection from Harsh Winters: In colder zones, protect your cypress from strong winter winds and heavy snow by providing some shelter or mulching around the base.
