Chirimen Hinoki Cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Chirimen', a dwarf Hinoki cypress that I stumbled upon at our local nursery last year.  

I thought it was having dieback on top this spring until I got closer and noticed those brown areas are pollen cones.  Even its reproduction parts are cute!


  1. There you go ... talking dirty! It is an interesting plant. So many of the dwarf evergreens are neat!

  2. So there is nothing wrong with the brown stuff on the plant, I almost cut it off.
