Thoweil Hinoki Cypress Care
Thoweil Hinoki Cypress needs full to partial sun. It prefers acidic, moist, and well-drained soil. New plants need water weekly, while established plants only need water during a prolonged dry period. New trees and plants grown in non-acidic soil will benefit from application of an acidic fertilizer. Established trees are not heavy feeders, but advanced gardeners may want to test the soil to determine if fertilization is necessary.
Prune the Thoweil Hinoki Cypress to maintain its shape as necessary during the summer. Trim overgrown branches or branches that look out of place to create a more pleasing form.
Thoweil Hinoki Cypress Spacing
Mature Thoweil Hinoki Cypress shrubs reach 3 to 4 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. Create a hedge by planting shrubs 1 to 2 feet apart, or feature one shrub in a 12-inch wide container.
