Chamaecyparis obtusa is a conifer in the cypress family Cupressaceae, native to central Japan, commonly known as Hinoki Cypress. The Hinoki Cypress is a slow-growing tree which grows to 35 m tall with a trunk up to 1 m in diameter.
The bark is dark red-brown. The leaves are scale-like, 2-4 mm long, blunt tipped, green above, green below with a white stomatal band at the base of each scale-leaf. The cones are globose, 8-12 mm diameter, with 8-12 scales arranged in opposite pairs.
The wood is lemon-scented and light-colored with a rich, straight grain, and is highly rot resistant. It is also a popular ornamental tree in parks and gardens, both in Japan and elsewhere in temperate climates including western Europe and parts of North America.
An exceptional type of bonsai. Of very regular growth and good quality. Especially in a solitary location this plant will make an impression on the design of a garden. Very old and of noble shape.
