Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Green Globe' / Green Globe Lawson cypress

Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Green Globe' is a diminutive, bun-shaped selection of Lawson cypress with very fine, tight, dark-green foliage. It is one of the smallest cultivars known of this species. After 10 years of growth a mature specimen will measure only 12 to 16 inches (30 - 40 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of barely 1 inch (2.5 cm).

'Green Globe' originated as a seedling selected in 1950 by Palmer & Sons Nursery, Remuera, New Zealand.
