The Perfect Evergreen for Small Spaces
Why Dwarf Hinoki Cypress Shrubs?
A dwarf evergreen with a unique look, the Dwarf Hinoki is a great choice for front doors, borders, beds and rock gardens. In fact, the Hinoki Shrub's slow, upright growth makes it perfect for any compromised planting location, from tight spaces to shady areas.
If you've been searching for an evergreen with unique visual appeal, then look no further than the Cypress Dwarf Hinoki. Like a plush, velvet coat, the Cypress Dwarf will dress up any location you choose, and fit like a glove in the tightest of planting sites.
The convenience factor will add to the pleasure Hinoki offers because its upright growth makes pruning virtually unnecessary. And growth is about as deliberate as it gets, so you won't have to worry about relocation once you've given it a home.
Among the most eclectic evergreens, the Cypress Dwarf Hinoki has a beauty that almost defies description. Rich, hunter green foliage blends wonderfully with lighter yellow fan-like leaves and blooms. Softened by drooping branch work with an irregular globe shape, the tree will add dense, easy-growing character as no other evergreen can.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Dig the hole twice the size as the root ball and just a little shallower. Loosen the soil in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through the soil. Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Hinoki Cypress tree and gently position them downward in the hole. The top of the root flare (where the roots end and the trunk begins) should be about an inch above the surrounding soil. Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go. When completely backfilled, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.
2. Watering: Water your Hinoki Cypress evenly until the soil becomes moist. You’ll want the area to look and feel moist but not to the point where it’s oversaturated or soggy. Allow the soil to dry for a few days until it feels dry to the touch about 2 inches below the surface. A slow drip from a garden hose works best as it allows the water to penetrate the soil deep down to the roots without over saturating it.
During excessive hot and dry weather, you may need to up the watering to three times weekly. Some regions in the Southwestern U.S. can have very dry winters, if located in that area and suffering a winter drought, you should water twice a month through the winter season.
Stick your finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water it until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is some moisture present, leave it be until the soil dries a bit more.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your tree well after a year of growth once the root system has had enough time to establish. This will speed up the growth of your tree and provide beneficial nutrients. Using a general fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 formula once every spring will give it a boost. Alternatively, you can feed the tree with solid tree fertilizer spikes labeled for use on evergreens. You’ll find the proper number of spikes to use in the directions on the fertilizer packaging.
4. Pruning: If you intend on letting your cypress tree grow to its full, mature height then very little pruning will be needed. If you plan to keep your trees from growing past a certain point or want them to stay in an ornate shape, then pruning more regularly will be required.
