Chamaecyparis pisifera--Sawara False Cypress

List of visuals associated with this text.
     Grow  false  cypress cultivars in a sunny  location  in
moist, well drained loam.  The plants transplant  reasonably
well  when  root pruned, but the height, spread  and  growth
rate depend on the cultivar selected.  Some of the cultivars
listed  grow  too  large for use  in  foundation  plantings.
There may be problems with sun scorch.                      

     Cultivars are: 'aurea nana'--dwarf, 3 feet tall, yellow
foliage;  'Boulevard'--  3 to 8 feet tall,  bluish  foliage;
'filifera   nana'--dwarf,  2  1/2  feet   tall,   branchlets
pendulous,  threadlike;  'Golden Mop'--3 feet tall,  foliage
yellow,  threadlike;   'nana'--dwarf, 2  feet  tall,  dense,
spread  is twice the height;  'plumosa compressa'--dwarf,  2
feet  tall,  rounded, dense;  'plumosa  rogersii'--dwarf,  3
feet  tall,  golden yellow  foliage;   'squarrosa  minima'--
