Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Little Ann' / Little Anne Hinoki cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Little Ann' is a fine, delicate, dwarf, conical selection of Hinoki cypress. Its form and foliage is similar to 'Nana Gracilis,' but has more upward and outwardly directed branches. The foliage is arranged in delicate small fans that are dark green, but brightening significantly toward new growth on the perimeters. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 12 inches (30 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of around 1 inch (2.5 cm).

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the early 1980s by Joe Reis of Merritt, Long Island, New York. Iseli Nursery of Boring, OR is credited with its introduction to the U.S. nursery trade.

I literally just purchased Little Ann Hinoki at Orchards Feed Mill Ace Hardware in Vancouver, WA. There were several quart sized pots, and they were about 10 inches tall. If you are in the area, check them out

I too, want to know where I can purchase this conifer? I live in North Ogden, Utah.
