Why plant Crippsii Hinoki Cypress?

Crippsii Hinoki Cypress will bring some sparkle to your garden all year-round with its cheery yellow foliage. Even the darkest days of winter will seem a little brighter when blessed with its warm golden glow. This elegant evergreen specimen tree will add structure to your landscape with its graceful branching habit as well as texture with its soft, feathery foliage. Plant it where you can view it from inside the house in winter for a nice cold season pick-me-up. In spring, you may see robins or cardinals nesting in the shelter of Crippsii’s colorful branches.

Hinoki Cypress hails from Japan, where specimens can grow to over 100 feet tall and live for 1,000 years. The aromatic wood has been used in building palaces, shrines, and theaters there. As an ornamental tree, Hinoki Cypress is loved all over the world and is considered by many to be one of the choicest conifers that can be grown. Crippsii was found in 1901 at a nursery in England belonging to Thomas Cripps. The nursery no longer exists, but Cripps’ legacy lives on in the tree that bears his name and which is still embraced as one of the finest Hinoki selections available well over 100 years later.

How to use Crippsii Hinoki Cypress in the landscape?

The innermost leaves that are shaded will often be more green than the bright golden leaves on the branch tips, creating a pretty two-tone effect. Likewise, if Crippsi is grown in part shade, it won't be as intensely yellow as it would be in full sun. In shade, it will also have an airier habit. Once you catch sight of the feathery yellow-green fronds, you'll fall in love with Cripps. An excellent option for a soft background to your favorite flowering plants, Cripps will make itself at home in your landscape with its vigorous vertical growth. Cripps is also a great option for a more non-traditional privacy hedge or a windbreak.

How To Plant Crippsii Hinoki Cypress

Crippsii Hinoki Cypress is most at home in moderate climates that aren’t extremely hot in summer or bitterly cold in winter. Protection from subfreezing winds in the form of a windbreak that deflects the prevailing winds is also helpful in preventing windburn (browned foliage) that can occur. Crippsii appreciates regular water, but won’t abide “wet feet.” Otherwise, this star ornamental is pretty much trouble-free. You can trim the branch tips on a regular basis if you’d like your tree to develop a denser habit. Letting it grow naturally will result in an equally lovely but more open form.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Prune back dead branches as well as any that are out of place, pruning should take place during the summer months.
