'Charlie' the Hinoki Cypress

$ 105.00

I’m Charlie, the Hinoki Cypress or the Chamaecyparis obtusa. My evergreen shoots are composed of tight fans that give me the look of falling water. Pinch off a leaf tip and crush it for the classic hinoki fragrance. My wood is lemon scented and rot-resistant, which is why you find me in Japanese temples and baths.

Place me in a morning-sun or partial-shade location, and water me well by placing my pot in a bowl of water up to the rim. Do this about once a week, or when my pot feels about 1/2 lighter. I stay green all year, so you can enjoy my form even on the coldest days. In winter, put me in a protected, cold spot outdoors so that I can go dormant and feel rested come springtime.

Includes care instructions. Plate sold separately.
