Crippsii Hinoki Cypress
Click to Enlarge
The brightest yellow cultivar that we know of. New growth emerges almost white, aging to soft yellow with green undertones. Fast growing, upright tree needs some pruning to look its best. Yellow foliage does burn in full sun so afternoon shade is advisable.
This variety can be kept as a multi-stemmed shrub by pruning out any leaders that appear.Zone: 5 - 9
