Answer: A common name for this plant could be golden dwarf Hinoki Cypress. It is a slow growing form of Chamaecyparis. In botanical names, the word nana typically means small and lutea typically means yellow. I would suggest planting it in somewhat acidic, organic and humusy soil that is evenly moist yet well drained; I would site it in morning sun with protection from winter winds.
