White Pygmy Sawara Cypress - Chamaecyparis pisifera 'White Pygmy'

The coloring is just lovely in the miniature garden - as the tips of the tiny foliage are a lovely cream color, turning into a beautiful gray-green color as you follow the branch towards the center of the shrub.

Shear it in late winter to keep it in a tight ball and to encourage the white tips. Full sun brings out the white tips also. A very fun cypress!
