    Better Stamina & Hardiness!

    Having many of the same desirable qualities as the Leyland Cypress tree with which it shares its genetic makeup, the Improved Leyland Cypress (Cuprocyparis x leylandii ‘Murray’) is a next-generation hybrid marvel! It has greater resistance to insects and diseases, which makes it a longer-lived evergreen tree for your landscape. And it handles hot and humid climates in its southern range as easily as its sturdy branches hold up under snow and ice in the north. If you want a tough evergreen tree, the Improved Leyland Cypress is a winner!

    Improvements You’ll Love
    The Improved Leyland Cypress tree brings an abundance of better traits over the conventional Leyland specimens, such as:

    Faster growth. It grows even more rapidly than the original Leyland Cypress trees! Don’t be surprised if you see an average of 4 feet of new growth each year on our healthy, well-branched Improved Leyland Cypress trees.

    Fragrant and deeper-colored foliage. Combined with lemony mint-scented foliage that is soft to the touch, foliage shades of aqua-blue create a colorful and fragrant display.

    Stronger root system. This improvement helps anchor the large Improved Leyland Cypress more securely and to help sustain it during short periods of drought.

    A Trio of Versatility That Benefits You
    Put the Improved Leyland Cypress tree to work for you! It matures into a dense green screen with branches that grow to the ground, enabling it to block unsightly views. If you want a tall privacy fence, Improved Leyland Cypress offers a green alternative to constructed fencing. A row of these trees is also an effective windscreen that buffers cold winter winds from your home and property.
    Planting tip: A double row of trees planted in a staggered design offers more protection than a single-row windscreen.

    A Perfect Christmas Tree
    You may want to plant the Improved Leyland Cypress as a living Christmas tree when you know the history behind it. The tree’s botanical name includes the last name of Bill Murray. Murray was a former University of Georgia (UGA) forester who identified a new hybrid of the Leyland Cypress tree and began propagating it. After years of research and field-testing trials, Murray’s tree yielded superior benefits beyond those of the original Leyland Cypress. The new tree was named for him – the “Murray Cypress,” which is the Improved Leyland Cypress that we’re offering. Murray was also a Christmas Tree Production Specialist for UGA and a past President of the National Christmas Tree Association. Through his research, he found that the Improved Leyland Cypress tree had soft, evergreen foliage; stronger and more horizontal branches for holding ornaments; and fragrant foliage – all qualities that make it the perfect Christmas tree!
