|Design Ideas||This bright small arborvitae is exceptional in limited city gardens and courtyards with trying conditions as small hedge or spherical semiformal accents. This form is exceptional for spare modern design gently clipped to geometric perfection. Use in beds and borders to add interest for the winter months, particularly under snow, when all else is bare. Adapts beautifully to wild and rock gardens where they are exceptional. A problem solver for formal gardens in dry climates of the Southwest where boxwood and other conifers suffer. Makes a fine container foliage plant for porch, patio and terrace.|

|Care||Thrives in enriched, evenly moist, loamy, well-drained soils; dislikes dry conditions. Mulch around root zone and shelter from drying winds. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.|
|Lore||Cypress wood is valued for its resistance to decomposition and as such is used for fence posts and other examples of earth-to-wood contact. Leaves and twigs produce a camphor-like essential oil.|
