Xanthocyparis nootkatensis ‘Green Arrow’ False Cypress

Description: Cupressus nootkatensis 'Green Arrow' is a very narrow, fast-growing form of Nootka cypress with strictly weeping branches and dark, blue-grey-green open foliage. Its side branches hang closely against the trunk, especially as they mature and is great for small gardens or tight spaces.

History: Buchholz & Buchholz Nursery of Gaston, Oregon introduced this cultivar to the nursery trade in 1984.
