YES, saguaro like the cactus; this slow growing form has a branching structure that resembles its namesake. It has the same beautiful deep green foliage of the plant it sported from, 'Wisselii'. For the "Wild Side" gardener!

One of the best of the "Cactus Armed" Chamaecyparis, this slow growing form has gorgeous steel blue congested foliage and a very unique habit. Columnar, and a bit twisty, several "arms" will develop over time and give it a familiar saguaro cactus look. To only 3' tall and 2' wide in 5 years in well drained soil, full sun with little summer water once established. Great for small gardens and containers. Oregon Native Plant

This lovely, distinctive conifer will form an upright small tree (have seen 12’x8’ plants). There will be a main stem with armlike stems similar to a saguaro cactus. This sport of C. lawsoniana ‘Wisselii’ came from Holland. We only buy plants that are grafted on virus indexed understock so they don’t die all the time like cuttings do.
