Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana Hedging

Lawsons Cypress, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana, is an evergreen, coniferous hedging plant or large, quite narrow tree.
Lawsons Cypress can reach over 40 metres if it grows freely as a tree.

Lawsons Cypress hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

See our selection of evergeen hedging or see our full range of hedging plants.

Spacing a Lawsons Cypress hedge:

Plant Lawsons Cypress hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.

General description of Lawsons Cypress plants:

Sometimes called False Cypress, this is a large, fast growing evergreen tree that makes an excellent screen or windbreak. It clips very well, so it can be grown as a hedge, but it must be clipped regularly because overgrown hedges can't be hard pruned. The slightly drooping foliage is darker than that of leylandii.

Although this natural species variety does not hold an RHS Award of Garden Merit, it has produced an exceptionally high number of cultivars, about 30, that do. Since these differ only in appearance, you could say that this variety is an honourary holder of the award. 

Did You Know? 

This tree was discovered in Northern California in the 1850's during a search for a missing botanist called John Jeffrey. The first seeds raised in Britain were grown at the Lawson Nursery in Edinburgh. The timber of this tree is very popular in Japan for building coffins. In its native range this tree can reach 70 metres tall.
