Slender Hinoki Cypress

Chamaecyparis obtuse ‘Gracilis’


Compact Hinoki Cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa gracilis ‘compacta’




               Hinoki Cypress at our Snohomish Nursery.  We have a very nice selection in several sizes.          


        The Hinoki Cypress is a slow growing evergreen tree with curled sprays of dark green  foliage with excellent texture.   This columnar-shaped tree has an open and slightly irregular growth habit.  Because of their interesting form and texture, they are best grown as specimen trees rather than privacy trees. These cultivars are smaller forms the large forest timber tree native to Japan, whose timber was used for the construction of temples. 

         We carry two Hinoki cultivars--"Slender" and "Compacta".  The Slender is the smaller of the two (see height and width specifications below); the Compacta is larger and denser than the Slender




This tree is on the Great Plant Picks list for the Pacific Northwest.


Foliage:   Evergreen               

Mature Height:    Slender:  to 15 ft.  Compacta:   to 20 ft.   May be taller after many years.              

Mature Width:     Slender:  to   6 ft.   Compacta:  8-10'         May be wider after many years.

Sunlight:  Best in part shade. Full sun O.K. if given extra water.

Soil:  Well-drained soil best. Considered drought tolerant if grown in part shade.

Growth Rate:  Slow growing.

What to Expect the First Year:  As with all newly-planted trees, these need to be watered carefully through the first Spring/Summer--see our "Care of Your Trees" section for more details. 

Comments:  Can be pruned to keep shorter, and can be shaped to accommodate tight planting locations. Excellent  specimen for Japanese or Pacific Northwest style gardens.. Can grow in larger containers for  many years.  A  Pacific Northwest  “Great Plant Pick”.

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle


"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees.  The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"                                                                Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.  

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”                    Carol, Camano Island

"By the way, the trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space . . "                                                                                                   Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
