Cripps’ Hinoki Cypress is a top-rated evergreen, with spectacular golden foliage, that rapidly grows into a small tree ideal as a specimen, hedge or privacy screen. In ten years it will be 10 feet tall and 4 feet wide – a graceful column of fern-like foliage that emerges in spring bright gold, and it remains gold on the tips all year round. In winter it glows with a dusting of sunlight that brightens every part of your garden. This tree is easily grown in most garden soils from zone 5 to zone 8, needing no detailed care at all. It makes a beautiful specimen on a lawn, or you can create a magnificent hedge or screen with it, outclassing other fast-growing plain-green evergreens, and growing almost as quickly. This very special classic tree is admired wherever it is seen.

  • Glowing golden spring foliage
  • Dusted with golden tips all year round
  • Fast-growing upright form, with ferny foliage
  • Easily grown in ordinary garden conditions
  • Very special specimen, hedge or screen

Cripps’ Hinoki Cypress grows best in moist, rich, well-drained soil. Once established it is moderately drought-tolerant, but it grows best with a steady supply of water. Do not plant in wet, soggy places. Plant in sun for the strongest foliage color, but it will grow well in partial shade too. It has no significant pests or diseases, and grows as much as 12 inches a year, to quickly reach 10 feet tall, and ultimately as much as 50 feet in height.
