Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Filicoides'
It's a cone!

Common name fernspray false cypress
Family cupressaceae
Life cycle tree (Z4-9)
Size 8-10'
Light sun

Evergreen with an irregular growth pattern. Its cultivar name (which is latin for 'fernlike') refers to its branching pattern, resembling the fronds of a fern. Ours is still a small specimen, and has been for years now: it's a slow grower.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
