(Hinoki Falsecypress, Tsatsumi Gold Falsecypress)

A sacred tree in its native Japan, this coniferous evergreen forms a handsome broadly conical specimen with dark green scale-like leaves and flat fan-like branch tips. The foliage has white bands underneath. Leaves on young plants and some cultivars are small and needle-like. Large specimens have handsome reddish-brown bark that exfoliates in narrow strips. The small globular cones are green maturing to reddish brown. Many cultivars are available, including dwarf, prostrate, variegated, and gold-leaved...

(Hinoki Falsecypress, Well's Hinoki King Hinoki Falsecypress)

Hinoki King falsecypress is a slow-growing small evergreen tree native to Japan with twisting dark green leaves. These needles are flattened and have white bands on the undersides.

'Wells Hinoki King' should be situated in a full sun location in a moist and well-draining soil. Its mature size, although slow to obtain, makes it perfect for foundation accents or as a specimen in a mixed shrub border, large rockery or cemetery. Protect it from cold, dry winter winds.

(Japanese Falsecypress, Sawara Falsecypress)

Japanese falsecypress is a hardy evergreen conifer best known for its legions of interesting cultivated varieties. Wild-type specimens in Japan become large trees, but most cultivated forms are far more compact and have foliage in an array of textures and colors. In fact, garden varieties have been separated into three groups that differ in their foliage textures. These include the Filifera Group, with scale-like leaves held in cascading, rope-like branchlets; the Plumosa Group, with feathery masses...

(Boulevard Japanese Falsecypress, Japanese Falsecypress)

Represented in gardens primarily by three large groups of cultivars, Sawara falsecypress is a hardy evergreen conifer native to Japan. Bearing the dense spreading needles characteristic of the Squarrosa Group, the cultivar 'Boulevard' is noted for its showy soft silvery-blue foliage which becomes tinged with purple in winter. Its narrow conical habit is also striking. It eventually forms a large shrub or small tree. The spherical pea-sized cones are green maturing to brown.

(Japanese Falsecypress, Soft Serve™ Falsecypress)

This moderately compact, markedly hardy Japanese Falsecypress is slow-growing, pyramidal and has delicate foliage that's rich deep green on the top and silvery blue underneath. It was discovered by Dow Whiting of Nixa, Missouri as a branch sport of the common Japanese Falsecypress cultivar, 'Boulevard.'

The foliage of Soft Serve™ is soft and borne in flattened sprays of two-tone, scale-like leaves that are dark on top and silvery beneath. The needles line horizontal branches that are denser in...

(Dwarf Golden Threadleaf Falsecypress, Japanese Falsecypress, Sawara Falsecypress)

Represented in gardens primarily by three large groups of cultivars, Sawara falsecypress is a hardy evergreen conifer native to Japan. Its clasping scale-like leaves, cascading tassel-like branchlets, and self-descriptive moniker mark 'Filifera Aurea Nana' as a member of the Filifera Group. It grows slowly into a low lacy golden-yellow mound. The spherical pea-sized fruits are rarely if ever produced.

This cultivar thrives in partial shade and moist, slightly acid, organic-rich, well-drained...

Represented in gardens primarily by three large groups of cultivars, Sawara falsecypress is a hardy evergreen conifer native to Japan. Its clasping scale-like leaves, cascading tassel-like branchlets, and self-descriptive moniker mark 'Filifera Aurea' as a member of the Filifera Group. Introduced to Western gardens in the late 19th Century, this relatively slow growing, bright golden-yellow cultivar eventually forms a large pyramidal shrub or small tree. The spherical pea-sized cones are green maturing...

Introduced to Western gardens in 1861, this fine cultivar eventually forms a large pyramidal shrub or small tree. Mature specimens display handsome orange-brown flaking bark. The spherical pea-sized cones are green maturing to brown....
