Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Hage'

from 20.00

In ten years (HxW): 12" x 12" 

A Wabi Sabi favorite

This miniature hinoki cypress is a broad-based, compact, upright dwarf with rich emerald foliage fans that fit close either side by side or one above the other. Growth when young can be as much as an inch a year. My 60 year old specimen Hage pictured in the top photo has put out for the first time ever, two inches of growth this year, perfect for cutting propagation this fall! Original plant came from Holland in 1928. Back in the day I used to walk rows of hinoki looking for Hage with apical dominance to use for upright bonsai creations. They were hard to find then and they're still difficult to locate now as well. Cuttings taken from side branches produce mounding hinoki for many years until one year an upright shoot will make an appearance to start things vertically. I root only cuts taken from uprights so I know in the future they'll be much like my old specimen which has two tops now and measures seven feet wide and five feet tall.
