Plant Details: arizona cypress
6 - 9
The needles on the 'Carolina sapphire' have a bluish almost tealish color to them. This selection grows almost as wide as it does tall and in most situations which makes it a better evergreen screen tree specimen than the leyland cypress. It still has a nice fragrance to the foliage and offers a more relaxed look in the landscape. In the fall the 'Carolina Sapphire" has tiny yellow cones that make for a gorgeous contrast with the silver foliage, very showy. It does not have a formal growth habit and is far more relaxed than Var. 'Blue Ice'. Grows best in full sun. Approximate mature size is 30-40' tall x 10' wide.
