Chinoki cypress

Genus: Chamaecyparis.

Species: Chamaecyparis obtusa.

My favorite evergreen plant. Slow growing, it has beautiful shape, and it can get very old. I've seen example of 60 years old specimen. It was just unique. It needs a little pruning, 'cause it can be grown as bonsai. I just love it. Many people, don't like evergreen trees. But, believe me, they can be really worth it to be in your garden.
