Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Fairy Puff' Iseli Introduction (and new to me) I can't speak from experience as this is a new addition to my collection, but I plan to provide updates on my experiences in the future. From my research on this introduction: This is a dwarf and very slow growing Sawara Cypress. It was discovered as a mutation growing on 'White Pygmy' and introduced by Iseli Nursery. The tight white buds are encouraged by regular shearing. Very eye catching color, texture, when viewed in person and very soft to the touch. Right now it's ideal for small gardens and miniature gardens. Maybe if one was let to grow on, in 10 years you may have something that would provide an impact in a larger garden setting (and really there are other options in the trade that are similar in form, color, and texture that would be better suited for a large landscape needing instant impact). But it seems the primary feature of this plant is the tight growth brought on my regular maintenance, so it will always remain a small plant for me.
