This 1982 selection of hinoki cypress by the rock garden gurus, the Spingarns of Long Island, is best described as a lacy dwarf C.o. 'Cripsii'. The green and gold tightly congested foliage makes it a nice specimen for the rock garden. Information about mature size is unavailable since there aren't many mature ones around yet.
