The outstanding character of the irregular, upright Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Little John’ comes from a combination of foliage types. Some of it is tight sprays of congested, twisting fans that cup gracefully downward, and some is longer, more open shoots with red stems that reach up and out. Bronze winter tones add seasonal interest to this jolly fellow from Robin Hood’s Merry Men.

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.
