Hi all, I'd like to share some pictures of my Chamaecyparis pisifera boulevard project. It needs a lot of further foliage development but here it is so far;

Hi there, it's about four feet. The best I've ever seen is one by Simon Temblett. Surely a web search would find it.

I like it . . . BUT I wonder how long that deadwood will stay whole. I know how long that would (not) be in nature.

It's coming nice. Few years ago I started train Boulevard also but tree wasn't respond in pot well so I put it in open ground. Maybe one day I'll try again. Thanks for sharing John

I like it a lot.

But why not invest in a 2x3 metres piece of black fabric as a backdrop so we can see it more clearly? Laughing I've just cut off two or three dozen bamboo canes invading the "jungle" (my backgarden), pity you live so far away  Rolling Eyes

A very nice, very interesting project. thumbs up

foliage management difficult with these ?

No backbudding but plenty of new growth on younger stems. They get so dense they can get die back inside the foliage clouds. Cascading the branches so that the clouds merge gives the impression of short branches. They're thirsty trees. The growth pattern can be useful to give the impression of most mature coniferous trees, pine, Juniper cypress etc.
