Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Gemstone‘ is a very slow growing, sculpted selection of Hinoki cypress with a narrow, upright form. When young, it is reminiscent of a small, pointed wizard’s hat. As it matures, occasional side branches will develop adding aesthetic interest to the already pleasing, casual movement to its upward growing form. Typical rate of growth is less than a inch (2.5 cm) a year.
It has an open-branched narrow pyramidal form and gracefully arching branchlets with deep green tiny needles.This Chamaecyparis will grow best in full sun. It is slow growing. The falsecypress prefers mostly a fresh, rich, neutral and well-drained soil. It grows better when planted in a sunny area but sheltered.
