Hinoki Golden Falsecypress features yellow-green foliage that is more intense in full sun. The color also gives a two-tone affect, especially when factoring in the spreading, graceful branches of pendant sprays. The conical habit helps make this cultivar a showy specimen as well as an option for an informal hedge. It possesses a slow to moderate growth rate and does not require any pruning, although one is able to do an occasional shearing.
