Cupressus Arizonica var Glabra is a premium, bluish-green, designer landscape variety of Cypress tree. This variety of Cypress is most commonly grown as a feature plant for its beautiful silvery-green foliage, or as an informal hedge (as it is very fast growing) providing beautiful colour and requiring only a light trim (optional) every couple of years, to keep it in shape. The natural shape of this Cypress is the classic "Christmas Tree" shape, and the plant generally maintains its shape as it matures. By pruning the centre of the tree at a young age (~1m height), the plant can be forced to produce more lateral growth and form a hedge-like shape. When trimming, be sure to enjoy the beautiful aromatic smell, that also whiffs through the air when the tree canopy is wet during rain. Cupressus Arizonica Glabra "Arizona Cypress" is suitable for pots, borders, rockeries, rural/acreage/estate and other garden situations, particularly dry areas where it may be difficult to establish other plants with higher water requirements.
Cupressus Arizonica Glabra "Arizona Cypress" is generally easy to grow and does not require any maintenance, will tolerate soils with generally poor nutrition and is resistant to most common garden pests and diseases.
