The plant is the perfect conifer for ground cover in borders or on sloping ground and banks. Plants are zero maintenance, super hardy and carry decorative ferny foliage. The prostrate habit of Hinoki Cypress means it’s low-growing and covers ground quickly and easily, so is ideal for the lazy gardener! The feathered foliage is evergreen, and changes to bronze-purple each winter. Height and spread: 1m (39″). Plant Hinoki Cypress into any moist, but well-drained soil in full sun. The soil can be acid, alkaline or neutral.
