The Lemon Twist Hinoki Cypress is a fascinating and unique form of this Japanese tree, remarkable for its thread-like, twisted foliage in a crisp lemon-yellow color. It grows into a rounded evergreen shrub about 4 feet tall, and 4 feet across, after around 10 years. It will not rapidly outgrow its space, and fits perfectly into a small garden, or as part of a larger planting in a big garden. Dwarf evergreens are excellent plants for creating interesting foundation planting around your home. They are perfect low-maintenance plants for mixed shrub beds, or for beds filled with a variety of different dwarf and medium-sized shrubs. Use this fascinating and exotic-looking plant in an Asian-style garden setting, where it will look right at home beside Japanese maple and dwarf pine trees.

  • Exotic yellow-green foliage in threads and twisted ‘clubs’
  • Attractive neat mound reaching 4 feet tall and across
  • Easily grown in most garden situations
  • Never needs trimming to keep its beautiful character
  • Excellent way to add variety without adding maintenance work

Plant the Lemon Twist Hinoki Cypress in full sun or light shade. It will grow in all the climate zones from 4 to 8, in any well-drained soil. Water regularly when newly planted, but mature plants are moderately drought resistant. You need never worry about pests or diseases, and you don’t need to trim it at all to keep it neat. Enjoy the novel foliage by planting where it can be seen closely, perhaps even in a large pot or container. This plant combines exotic appearance with easy care – an ideal combination.
