Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Devine's Sport' / Devine's Sport Hinoki cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Devine's Sport' is a irregular conical, dwarf selection of Hinoki cypress with dense, fluffy, blue-green foliage. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 3 feet (1 m) tall and two-thirds as wide, an annual rate of growth of 3 to 4 inches (7.5 - 10 cm).

This cultivar originated as a branch mutation found in the early 2000s by Bill Devine and introduced to the nursery trade by Girard Nursery, Ashtabula, Ohio.
