Chamaecyparis nootkatensis ‘Pendula’

For sale by Bluebell Nursery

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

An evergreen tree native to North America, Chamaecyparis nootkatensis 'Pendula' is very striking with elegant cascades of flattened, soft-green foliage. We find that they do best when grown on a cane for the first few years to support the main leader.

This can then be removed once the tree is more mature. A superb bonsai plant and a handsome specimen garden tree!

They are tolerant of chalky soils but grow best in moist but well drained neutral to slightly acid soil. If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.
