Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana'


 It is an evergreen shrub in the Cupressaceae (cypress) family. The parent plant is native to Japan. 


Dark-green foliage forms twisting, fan-shaped branchlets in dense, tiered layers and have a sweet fragrance when crushed. At maturity, it forms a compact, flattened globe with horizontal branches. Its small size contributes beautifully to small-scale plantings, including border fronts, rock, and container gardens.Use this plant in wet areas with poor drainage, or along ponds, streams, or boggy sites. Include it in butterfly, pollinator, or rain gardens. It provides cover for wildlife and is a larval host plant for butterflies. Planted in small groups it makes an effective privacy screen.
