Chamaecyparis Obtusa bears horizontal branches with flat sprays of green interior with golden yellow branch tips with the foliage seeming to spray out like a fountain from the main stem erupting out very dense and well-branched core.

For best growth plant it in well-drained soil and mulch heavily in order to keep the roots moist and cool. Avoid planting in full direct sun as the foliage my burn.
