Chamaecyparis conifer plants
False Cypress conifers (Latin name Chamaecyparis) is one of the UK's most popular ornamental garden conifers with a tall-growing habit and distinctive, feathery evergreen foliage. They're perfect for adding height and structure to the garden, making a useful backdrop to more showy plants at the back of a border or grown as hedging. Chamaecyparis conifers come in a variety of foliage colours through greens, blues and golds. They have short, scaly leaves on flattened shoots, giving a fern-like appearance with narrow, white tinged markings underneath and a parsley-like scent when crushed. Pea-sized, scaly cones ripen from female flowers, starting off green before turning cream and then brown. They're resilient growers, low maintenance plants and drought tolerant once established.
