Two-toned evergreen. Get more color in a small space with Pinpoint® Blue & Gold chamaecyparis. Its appealing texture and versatile columnar habit are further accentuated by its feathery two toned foliage. New growth emerges a vivid lime-gold before maturing to a powdery blue that looks good with any color and style of architecture. Like Pinpoint® Blue chamaecyparis, its narrow habit ensures space saving, low maintenance performance.
