If you fell in love with cypress bearing thread-like leaves don’t ever miss this variety called Tsatsumi Gold. It is a Japanese selection of Hinoki cypress with thin branches, densely covered with tiny, scale-like, pointed leaves (needles) which tend to disappear on older branches, revealing their orange-brown colour. Young foliage is bright yellow and turns yellow-green in summer. In autumn and winter it gains golden shades. Tsatsumi Gold is a slow grower, forming a rounded shape when young, and pushing up a central leader when older which changes the shape to widely pyramidal. 15-year-old plants can be about 1m tall and wide.

Hinoki cypress likes medium fertile, acid to neutral, moist but well-drained soil. Grow it preferably in full sun or only a light shade so that the plant keeps its compact shape and bottom branches. Pruning or trimming can be done in early spring after all frosts. Mulching is recommended for keeping the soil moist. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5), possibly a little more.
