Chamaecyparis is a small genus containing just 5 conifers originating from Eastern Asia and North America, usually columnar in shape. On plants less than a year old, leaves are needle-like, later developing into sprays that are flat and overlapping in adult trees. Commonly known by the names Cypress and False Cypress. These evergreen plants produce cones and the leaves and bark are aromatic. This slow-growing genus has been widely cultivated as ornamental trees and for extensive landscaping use - hundreds of cultivar varieties have been bred for various traits including variegated/gold/bronze foliage, dwarf size, hedging and for its retention of the young needle-like leaves. Popular in rock gardens and for Bonsai.
