Nana Lutea'

Nana Lutea’ originated as a sport of Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Nana Gracilis’ and was found in 1966 by Jan Spek of Boskoop, The Netherlands. It is a slow-growing, dwarf selection of Hinoki cypress that will form a narrow pyramid as it matures. Its fan-shaped foliage forms overlapping layers with the outer foliage a golden yellow accented with tones of pale butter yellow while the inner foliage is dark green. If the plant is planted in full shade, the yellow foliage will become lime-green. It grows 3 to 5 ft. tall and wide.
