Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Dainty Doll'

Dainty Doll Hinoki Cypress

Evergreen Conifer, Shrub

"The charming, slow-growing Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Dainty Doll’ displays rich green foliage and a low, rounded habit when young. As it matures, the plant spreads into an intriguing, irregular form that becomes wider than tall. Lacy foliage and unique character make ‘Dainty Doll’ an excellent option for highlighting small spaces, including rock gardens and containers, where its character may flourish." —Iseli Nursery
