It looks evergreen with frosty white tips and it was $4.99 in the grocery store. I love it and it is much prettier than the picture. There are different decorations in the middle of the plants or of course you could put your own which I will right after Christmas. (image-Jackie Lynnley)

I wouldn't think it would be outdoors plant but I will look into Phyllis' info and see if I can find out more. It says on it that it gets 1 inch tall but that has to be a misprint and I assume it means 1 foot. So it won't be too big but it is nice!
It grows to 6" or less. As long as it has partial shade and plenty of humidity, it should do well outdoors after the cold weather is gone.
Thanks Phyllis, so much! I will look into that. Sounds even more wonderful!
You are welcome, Jackie. I love that name 'Snowkist'. I want to get one or two of these trees and start a Bonsai forest with it. I hope my grocery store has them.
Hi Phyllis! The dwarf Hinoki cypress is gorgeous, and, indeed it would be great for bonsai! If planted outside in the ground, it can get to 10 feet: however, it is a very slow grower. When we get these in from Oregon, they are quick to sell:)
Hi Jackie. Do you still have your little Cypress tree? I did not see one last Christmas, but will be looking in nurseries for one for a Bonsai tree project I want to start. How is your tree doing? Did you put it outside?
No Phyllis, I think it is dead although there is enough green I am trying to revive it but really think it is done for.
ohhh - so sorry. I am still going to look for one though. They only get 1 - 3 ft high outside, but as a Bonsai inside it can be kept quite small.
Yes you should, it really is beautiful and if I see them I will get another too, and leave it more in sight to care for it closer.
Thanks Catherine; that might be the start of a terrarium. It would be pretty in one. The picture does not do it justice for it is really frosty looking.
Oh; I hope mine will make it; I sometimes have bad luck too and I think I over water many plants.
