Very narrow and graceful, this upright Alaskan cedar develops arching main branches from which beautiful blue-green foliage drapes straight down.  The elegant blue columnar tree can tolerate very shady sites. This species was formerly and is still commonly thought to be in the Chamaecyparis genus. However, it readily hybridizes with other species of Cupressus and bears many similarities, so it is now taxonomically classified as a species of Cupressus. In the past, it was also known as Xanthocyparis nootkatensis and Callitropsis nootkatensis.
