Results of Hinoki Cypress Bonsai – Oct. 10, 2009

Hinoki Cypress are native to Japan where it is grown and used for timber, lemon-scented and highly rot-resistant.  The tree naturally grows very slowly and forms forests, much like the eastern-red-cedar of New Jersey.  Hinoki Cypress are commonly used as an ornamental landscape shrub, known for its plumes of cloud-like foliage.  Unfortunately, it’s also a favorite to the deer!

Pictures from the event can be seen below.

Thanks to all those who attended the Hinoki Cypress class on October 10.  It was a great opportunity to meet new people from a fairly broad ranged area and we had a fantastic time.
