The most popular Hinoki is the dwarf cultivar. On a residential level it is the most versatile. With a full grown height of six feet and width of five it can be kept easily at half that size in the landscaping.
It is a bug, drought, and disease-resistant evergreen, and comes in three color variations: green with bright green tips, green with yellow tips, and yellow with green tips.
Not typically placed in the landscape as a hedge row, but mainly as singles or focal points, they become central to the plantings around them.
Being of a dwarf nature the speed to which they grow is close to that of a snail’s pace, that’s the reason they are so expensive; the longer they have to stay at the nursery, the more they’re going to cost you at the checkout. But they are tuff little buggers; I haven’t lost one yet.
If you have a sunny spot for one you’ll be glad you got one.
