Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Chirimen' is perfect dwarf Hinoki Cypress for narrow spaces. Its interesting, compact, crinkly texture and blend of blue-green and yellow-green colors make this Japanese selection a true stand out. The name, Chirimen, is for the textural look that it resembles of a traditional dyed silk crepe fabric used in making kimonos. Fairly sensitive to wet feet, this variety should be grown with perfect drainage.
