Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Confucius’ is a reliable, intermediate-sized selection that stays smaller than C. o. ‘Aurea,’ and it contributes a striking, full, upright form to any landscape.

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.
