The Templehof Hinoki Cypress Tree is a rare dwarf specimen conifer that has been attached to a short trunk to make a special feature plant. It grows slowly, becoming about 3 feet round and 5 feet tall in about 10 years. Older trees can grow to the size of a man. The foliage is very special – we could say unique. It grows in rounded clusters like bowls or shells, giving a very interesting and contemplative look to this plant. This feature becomes more pronounced with age, and don’t clip it as this may destroy that subtle element. The foliage is lime green to yellow in spring, dark green in summer and bronze to reddish-copper in winter. It makes a unique specimen in your beds or in a planter box or tub.

  • Rounded to dome-shaped evergreen specimen on a short trunk
  • Foliage has a unique rounded and cupped formation
  • Lime-green spring foliage
  • Winter brings bronze and copper tones to the leaves
  • A unique variety of beauty and quality

Full sun is best for the Templehof Hinoki Cypress Tree, but an hour or two of shade each day is fine too. It grows easily in most garden soils, but avoid planting in wet places and areas that are very dry. Although moderately drought-resistant when mature, some water during dry spells is always appreciated. It is normally free of pests or diseases and since it shouldn’t be trimmed it is basically it is very nearly a zero maintenance plant.
