This popular hinoki cypress cultivar was introduced from England in 1867. The shell-like branches of dark green foliage make an upright free form conifer. In ten years, expect it to reach 8' tall and 2' wide. Picture the Swamp Thang (southern for "thing") doing a belly dance and you can visualize the plant's shape...a great specimen!
