Hinoki Cypress Tree For Sale

The Perfect Evergreen for Small Spaces

Why Choose Dwarf Hinoki Cypress Trees?

Experience the beauty of full evergreen foliage in a smaller, more compact growth habit with the Dwarf Hinoki. This versatile tree is perfect for front doors, borders, beds, and rock gardens.

Thanks to its slow, upright growth, the Dwarf Hinoki is well-suited for compromised planting locations. Tough growing conditions are no problem, and it can even tolerate some shade. The Cypress will elevate the look of any location you choose and fit like a glove in the tightest of planting sites. Plus, its upright growth makes pruning virtually unnecessary.

One of the best things about the Dwarf Hinoki is that it can be container-planted, meaning you can have topiaries next to your entryway or a border of trees flanking your deck. No matter where the Dwarf Hinoki is planted, it will feel right at home.

In addition to its good looks and effortless growth, your Dwarf Hinoki is better because it’s planted, grown, and shipped with care. When it arrives at your door, it already has a healthy, better-developed root system, so you won’t get a tree this full and green from your local big-box store.

Planting & Care

To successfully grow and maintain your Hinoki Cypress tree, here are some important steps to follow:

Planting: Before planting, locate an area that receives proper sunlight for 4 to 6 hours per day and has well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice as large as the root ball, and position the top of the root flare about an inch above the surrounding soil. Hold the tree straight as you backfill the hole, tamping down the soil as you go. Water the soil to remove any air pockets.
For container planting, use a pot that’s twice the width of the shipped container, and fill it with organic potting soil. Place the tree and water it to settle the roots.

Watering: Water your Hinoki Cypress evenly until the soil becomes moist. Allow the soil to dry for a few days until it feels dry to the touch about 2 inches below the surface. Use a slow drip from a garden hose to penetrate the soil deep down to the roots without over-saturating it.
In hot and dry weather, you may need to water up to three times weekly.

For container-planted Hinokis, check for moisture by sticking your finger 2 inches into the potting soil. Water until it escapes the drainage holes, then stop.

Fertilizing: After a year of growth, fertilize your tree with a general fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 formula. Feed once every spring to give it a boost.

Pruning: If you want your Cypress tree to reach its full, mature height, very little pruning will be required. If you desire a specific shape, prune regularly to control the growth.
