Bloom Description: Like many members of the false cypress family, this one has two kinds of leaves: adult leaves are like closely adpressed overlapping scales; leaves on juvenile branchlets and young plants don't overlap and are shaped more like tiny awls or broad needles. The scalelike leaves of hinoki false cypress are borne in pairs of two unequal sizes and shapes, and this is one way to tell hinoki false cypress from the otherwise similar sawara false cypress

Native to: Chamaecyparis obtusa, the hinoki false cypress is native to southern japan and the island of taiwan.
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - the various cultivars of hinoki false cypress are used as specimens and for hedging, screening and windbreaks. These are slow growing evergreens, tolerant of acidic as well as alkaline soils. Hinoki false cypress is moderately tolerant of air pollution, too. The dwarf cultivars are valued in rock and alpine gardens, as novelty specimens and for bonsai. The intermediate cultivars are used for hedges and foundation plantings, and the larger cultivars as specimen trees. Care: hinoki false cypress is very tolerant of pruning. Upright branches tend to fork, and these should be pruned to a single branch since they will likely break at the fork in high winds or under a snow load. Prune in summer, but don't cut into the older, brown-barked stems. Water when dry. This tree likes a humid environment.
