Beyond Expectation
by JW, April 13, 2020

I purchased two Slender Hinoki False Cypress at Lowe’s two years ago; utilizing both as potted patio specimens. Each thrived...delivering beyond expectation in often extreme NC summer conditions. Now in year three, I’ve relocated each in-ground, to a permanent place of prominence in a terraced rock garden. To balance the design plan, I’ve ordered Hinoki #3 and eagerly await its arrival. This selection has been among the best, most carefree and interesting additions to our landscape ever.

Unique eye-catcher

I love this plant. It is nice to have plants not common in our neighborhood.
