Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Juniperoides'
Size: 12-15 inch head (18" Std)
Growth Habit: very slow, very dense
USDA Zone: 5-8
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: well drained soils
Comments: At a rate of one inch a year, this is a true slow-growing conifer. Densely packed, small cupped sprays make it a great choice for the miniature garden. These standards are 20 years old and have inch and a half to two inch trunks.
