    Is it true that the term, “dwarf”, simply means slow growing as opposed to “nana” or “pigmy” which designate small growers?

    Conifer Society has dwarf and slow-growing conifers organized into specific categories based on growth rate. Try their web site, in think the schedule is posted there. Stearn, BOTANICAL LATIN (David & Charles) says nanus means dwarf.

    Will this conifer do well in a south-facing situation, but where it is surrounded with taller, deciduous trees? I would say an open shade position.

    I visited Botanical Gardens for the first time today and fell in love with this sweet little thing. Is there a place I can buy a ‘Nana Gracilis’ in BC? And yes I know, it takes 30 years to get it there…

    I have the Chamaecyparis Obt Gracilis. I have noticed when touching it a powdery dust appears.
    Is there a fungus or disease? If so how do I treat it? The problem would be that it is right next to a Japanese Koi pond. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Will this plant withstand the cold winters in Canada (Saskatchewan)?

    Probably not with those zone ratings.
