Chamaecyparis nootkatensis 

AKA Cupressus nootkatensis 'Nidifera'

Small Spreading Alaskan Cedar 

Zones 4-8

'Nidifera' is quite unique for an Alaskan Cedar as the branching is more refined and showy with grey-green feathery foliage. When staked upright at early age it is said that this Alaskan cedar selection creates a spreading conical shape rare reaching higher than 8 ft in height. Others describe the form as more spreading and shorter, which I can only guess is leaving this selection unstaked creating its natural form. When grown this way 'Nidifera' may reach 4-5 ft in height by 5-6 ft in width in 10 years. 'Nidifera' was found in the late 1800's by the Rovelli Brothers in Italy.
