Full and upright, this slow growing evergreen has fans of naturally sculpted irregular branches, providing deep green furrows and playful tips. Pinch off a leaf tip and crush it for the classic hinoki fragrance.
I'm Howell, from the mountainous areas of central Japan. My admirers like my full upright stature and refreshing lemon-scent. My wood is rot-resistant, which is why you find me used to build Japanese temples and baths. In the spring, you'll see globulous pine cones on my needles and tiny pollen cones at my tips.
I like full to partial sun, meaning 3-6 hours per day, and will take water when my pot starts to dry. Keep me outside at all times to help me get the full spectrum of light, and remember to water me first. In the winter, I like to rest up and stay dormant in the cold weather so make sure my temps stay below 50 degrees.
