Chamaecyparis Nootkatensis Pendula, also known as the ‘Nootka Cypress Pendula’ and holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, is a beautiful and unique coniferous tree that is native to the Pacific Northwest region of North America. It is known for its drooping, cascading branches and elegant, feathery foliage. The tree can grow up to 15 metres tall and 13 metres wide, making it a perfect choice for gardens and landscapes that need a focal point or a vertical element.

One of the key features of the Chamaecyparis nootkatensis pendula is its distinctive blue-green needles that are soft to the touch and give the tree a delicate appearance. The needles are arranged in a feathery pattern on the branches, adding to the tree’s graceful look. The tree also produces small, inconspicuous cones that are a light brown colour.

How to care for your Chamaecyparis Nootkatensis Pendula

  1. Planting: This tree prefers well-draining soil and full sun. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types, from sandy to clay soils. When planting, make sure to dig a hole that is at least twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball of the tree.
  2. Watering: The tree is tolerant of both drought and wet conditions, but it is important to keep the soil consistently moist during the first growing season. Once established, the tree can tolerate periods of dryness.
  3. Fertilising: The tree does not require regular fertilisation, but you can provide a slow-release fertiliser at the time of planting to give the tree a boost of nutrients.
  4. Pruning: This tree does not require regular pruning, but you can trim back any damaged or diseased branches as needed. You can also prune to maintain the tree’s shape or to control its size if necessary.
  5. Cold Hardiness: The tree is hardy and can tolerate temperatures as low as -20°C.
  6. Growth Rate: The tree is a slow-growing tree, which means it will not outgrow its space too quickly.
