Hinoki Falsecypress Growing and Maintenance Tips

 A very low maintenance evergreen, however, it will benefit from light pruning to keep a compact shape. This slow-growing, irregular-shaped cultivar is a great addition to a rock garden or patio planter. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying, winter winds is recommended in an exposed location.
