Slender Evergreen Fits Almost Any Landscape
Why Slender Hinoki Cypress Trees?
The Slender Hinoki Cypress is a narrow, upright-growing evergreen that fits into nearly any garden space. If you've been looking for rich color and dense foliage for your small landscape, look no further. The Slender Hinoki is ideal for almost any space, from foundation plantings around your home to entryway containers.
This tree doesn't need a massive height to show off its impressive beauty. Slender Hinoki Cypresses grow in a pyramidal shape with open branches for a textured look that captures the eye with a unique shape, versus columnar trees that grow in tightly packed, uniform rows.
Their shimmering green foliage will pop against bricks and sidings to add bursts of color that draw the eye to your home, causing it to stand out as the most attractive home in the entire neighborhood. Your neighbors will just have to ask where you got your new charming trees!
With cold hardy growth down to -20 degrees, these Cypresses thrive throughout the country...snow and ice only intensify their beauty. Not only can they handle the cold, but they are also drought tolerant and have the ability to flourish in poor soils.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) is best for your Hinoki, but it grows in almost any soil, provided that it's well-drained.
Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Set your tree in the hole. Gently spread the roots outward and keep the tree straight as you backfill the hole. Use about 3 inches of organic mulch to keep the soil moist and to prevent competitive weeds from growing near the base of your tree.
You may stake for support as well. After one season of growth, you should be able to remove the stakes. To be sure that your tree is ready to stand on its own, just shake the center. If the root ball has no movement, then your tree’s roots have established and you can remove the support.
2. Watering: Water 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 murky. Allow the soil to dry for a few days until it feels dry to the touch about half an inch below the surface. A slow drip from a garden hose works best as it allows the water to penetrate the soil deeply.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your tree after a year of growth, once the root system has had enough time to establish. Using a general fertilizer formula such as 10-10-10 once every spring will give it a boost.
4. Pruning: These trees require very little pruning. If you're shaping your tree, prune in the winter.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I love the tree. The shipping box was damaged but the tree was safe inside.
Looking forward to watching this beautiful little tree grow. It was packed protectively and arrived safe and healthy to California even though the box was mangled. I tried getting the tree through a local nursery but none of them had stock or were able to find one. It was hard to take a chance on a mail order tree, but it seems to be working out fine so far. FastGrowingTrees.com made a believer out of me.
