Globosa Nana

Globosa Nana


Description: Globosa Nana Hinoki Cypress is a slow-growing evergreen shrub with a dense, rounded, globe-shaped form. Its foliage consists of flattened sprays of scale-like leaves that are arranged in overlapping layers, giving the plant a distinctive and attractive texture. The foliage color ranges from dark green to bluish-green, providing year-round interest in the landscape. This variety is prized for its compact size and neat, symmetrical growth habit.

Size: Globosa Nana Hinoki Cypress is a dwarf variety, typically reaching a mature size of about 3 to 4 feet (0.9 to 1.2 meters) in height and width. However, its growth rate is slow, and it may take several years to reach full maturity. The compact size and rounded shape make it an ideal choice for small gardens, rockeries, borders, and container plantings.

Growing Zones: Globosa Nana Hinoki Cypress is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 through 8, although its exact cold hardiness may vary depending on local climate conditions and microclimates. These zones encompass regions with cool to moderate temperatures and relatively mild winters. Hinoki Cypress generally prefer climates with cool summers and mild winters, though they can tolerate a range of conditions, including heat and humidity.

Light Requirements: Globosa Nana Hinoki Cypress thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day to maintain its compact growth habit and vibrant foliage color. However, it can tolerate some shade, especially in hot climates or during the afternoon sun.

Soil Requirements: Hinoki Cypress prefer moist, well-drained soil with good fertility. They are adaptable to a variety of soil types, including loamy, sandy, or clay soils, as long as they are well-drained. Amending the soil with organic matter such as compost can help improve soil structure and moisture retention, promoting healthy growth.

Watering: Hinoki Cypress have moderate water needs and prefer consistently moist soil. They should be watered regularly, especially during hot, dry periods or when grown in containers. However, they are sensitive to waterlogged conditions and may develop root rot if the soil remains excessively wet for extended periods. Watering frequency may vary depending on factors such as temperature, humidity, and soil type.
