Ident Needed
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:39 PM »
Desperately need an ident on this tree

I thought initially Cryptomeria or Thuja - or some kind of Microfilla cultivar?

Looks like a dwarf cultivar of Hinoki Cypress.

Looks like a Yatsubusa dwarf hinoki cypress: Yes, there are many, but this one is:

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Sekka'

That's a very dwarf congested form of Dwarf hinoki cypress which is often used for shohin bonsai in Japan. Quite rare outside of Japan in the US.
