Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Nana Gracilis’

'Nana Gracilis' is a compact, slow-growing, multi-stemmed, evergreen shrub that typically grows to 3' tall over the first 10 years. It will eventually mature over time in pyramidal to conical form to 6-9' tall. It features shell-shaped sprays of dense rich dark green foliage. Nana means dwarf and gracilis means slender or graceful.
