Answer: Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' is a slow growing evergreen for full sun to part shade. Its only requirements are adequate moisture and well draining soil. These plants root quickly so transplant stress is minimal. If you amend your soil with organic matter (compost, aged manure, etc.) to ensure fast drainage, and water on a regular basis, your new false cypress trees should grow and thrive in the site you describe. Enjoy your new garden!
