Bright, lemony yellow tips on tightly congested foliage give the small, globe-shaped Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Butter Ball’ a fresh, cheery look. The vivid 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.

Many perennials and bonsai plants will have a ‘winter look’ that differs from how they look when actively growing. Colder temperatures and short days alter the appearance of these plants as they go thru seasonal changes. Some plants require this reboot to bloom and/or perform at their best during the growing season. Plants may remain semi-dormant until early spring. Rest assured that these cosmetic changes do not adversely affect the health of your plant.
