Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Vokel's Upright' / Vokel's Upright Hinoki cypress

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Vokel's Upright' is a narrow, upright, dwarf tree form of Hinoki cypress with dense branching and rich, dark-green foliage. After 10 years, a mature specimen will measure 4 feet (1.3 m) tall and 12 inches (30 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 3 to 5 inches (7.5 - 12.5 cm).

Despite being a fairly well-known cultivar in the nursery trade, this conifer is, unfortunately, of unknown origin at this time.
