Bright, lemony yellow tips on tight compact foliage give the small, globe-shaped Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Butter Ball’ a fresh, cheery look. The bright coloring contrasts beautifully with naturally darker inner foliage. A consistently rounded habit and very slow growth distinguish the Butter Ball Hinoki Cypress as superior to others. Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Adds a splash of color to the miniature and fairy garden as well as in a life sized garden. Plant in the sun to partial shade.
