Planting More Fernspray Hinoki Cypress

Adding just one type of tree, bush, or plant can totally transform a space. I am always looking for ways to improve the landscape here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Last year I planted a group of large Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides' or Fernspray Hinoki cypress bushes along the carriage road just past my allée of lindens near the entrance to my Japanese Maple Woodland. They looked so beautiful, I decided to plant some more - 16 more! Yesterday, smaller Fernspray Hinoki cypress bushes were planted in between the lindens on both sides of the allée. These bushes are large-growing, upright specimens with long, ascending branches - perfect for this area!
