A truly graceful garden evergreen, featuring delicate sprays of soft green and gold variegated foliage along a pyramidal form; a special shrub for both color and texture in the garden, best used as an accent; prefers humid conditions.  Confucius Gold Hinoki Falsecypress has attractive gold-variegated green foliage which emerges yellow in spring. The scale-like leaves are highly ornamental and turn coppery-bronze in fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.  Confucius Gold Hinoki Falsecypress is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form.
