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.
