Gracilis Hinoki Cypress Shrubs for Sale Online
Sometimes called Slender hinoki cypress, it is an open-branched, upright pyramidal form with gracefully arching branches. Small, deep green needles with reddish tinged new growth have a soft, fern-like appearance and develop bronze coloring in winter. Gracilis Cypress makes an excellent small, slender evergreen for screening, hedges.
Slender Hinoki Cypress is an elegant and beautiful large shrub to small evergreen tree, the gracilis Hinoki cypress is a great choice for small gardens. It becomes a narrow pillar with lovely layered fan-like branches densely growing from the main trunk. It is slower and more compact than typical Hinoki cypress and matures more gracefully.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Gracilis Hinoki Cypress plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil for Gracilis Hinoki Cypress because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Gracilis Hinoki Cypress to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
