Quick Overview:

‘Torulosa’ is a slow-growing Hinoki cypress that typically forms a small upright pyramid to 4 ft. tall over the first 10 years, eventually maturing to 12 ft. tall. This compact conifer features twisted, contorted, thread-like branching clad with scale-like dark green foliage. It features spreading branches with flattened horizontal branchlets that droop at the ends. Dark green scale-like leaves in two sizes have white markings beneath. Crushed foliage is aromatic. Reddish brown bark will peel on mature trees. Small, 8-scaled, greenish-brown (female) to orange brown (male) cones.
