Fernspray Gold Hinoki Cypress in its winter blush. Underneath the amber foliage is a wonderful live green. It's really quite charming.

The pink Moonfrost Canada Hemlock is flanked by the Snow Sprite Cedar. Perfect eye candy for the conifer lover.
The new Chirimen Hinoki Cypress continues to be a favorite for the miniature garden with its whimsical shape. Note its winter blush. Amber tips that merge into the grey-green foliage further down on the trunk creating a stunning color combination - only from Ma Nature.
Photo-Op - the colorful spires of the Chirimen Hinoki Cypress against the neutral colored soil and box makes an unusual sight.
The new Jersey Jewel Japanese Holly has oval shaped leaves and appears more columnar in shape than it's sister, the Dwarf Pagoda. I'm looking forward to growing this one.
