Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Tsukumo’- Sawara Cypress – 2-Quart (Non-Native)


Ideal for the smallest site, Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Tsukumo’ is a rounded bun that almost doubles as a mossy green rock. It has dense, finely textured green foliage and grows so slowly that it won’t outsize a trough or rock garden. The compact cushion, which is hardy, tough and resilient, is wider than it is tall. Occasionally, short feathery plumes will sprout out among the fine foliage, adding character and dimension, or may simply be removed to maintain the most compact, tiny mound.

Garden Size: 1.5’H x 1.5’W
