Hesperocyparis pygmaea

Pygmy Cypress, an elegant form, extremely rare, highly variable cypress from California's Mendocino Coast and only a few are available. It is a coniferous evergreen tree that primarily occupies coastal areas. It can get up to 130 feet tall and the trunk can grow to over eight feet in diameter. Most trees live approximately 100 years, and they grow 36 inches per year, adding 13 to 24 inches in height per year.

You can enjoy nurturing it and transferring to sequentially larger pots before transferring outdoors. Combine it with a Norfolk pine and create your own desktop forest.

The foliage is a dull dark to light green color, with tiny scale-like leaves; seedlings bear needle-like leaves ¼” long. The cones are small, under ½”-1” long, and almost spherical, with six or eight scales arranged in opposite decussate pairs.

 Full Sun / Partial Shade Cold Hardiness 5°F
