Cupressus nootkatensis ‘Sparkling Arrow’

Cupressus nootkatensis ‘Sparkling Arrow’

Sparkling Arrow Alaskan Cedar

Slender weeping branches are dusted with a creamy yellow variegation. The overall effect is like a variegated cascade of delicate foliage. A wonderful narrow accent for a smaller space. This species was formerly and is still commonly thought to be in the Chamaecyparis genus. However, it readily hybridizes with other species of Cupressus and bears many similarities, so it is now taxonomically classified as a species of Cupressus. In the past, it was also known as Xanthocyparis nootkatensis and Callitropsis nootkatensis.
