Shimmering Icy-Blue Foliage
Drought-tolerant Arizona Blue Cypress trees (Cupressus arizonica) bump up the "green" in "evergreen" to a glistening shade of silvery bluish-green -- breathtaking! And although they'll look as though you've spent hours carefully shaping them into a perfect conical or pyramidal shape, you can put away the pruning shears. Arizona Blue Cypress trees naturally grow into this geometrical shape!
A Durable Beauty
Arizona Blue Cypress trees are rarely bothered by pests and disease, which makes them an easy-care choice for busy gardeners. Sunny sites encourage fast growth and help keep the foliage bright.
• Exquisite foliage.The foliage of Arizona Blue Cypress is as textural as it is colorful. Even though the scale-like leaves have a delicate and lace-like appearance, the trees are strong and resilient -- anything but delicate!
• Evergreen.The foliage not only persists on plants year-round, but it also retains the icy-blue color that contrasts beautifully with true-green evergreens.
• Drought- and heat-tolerant.This winning combination is tough to find -- plants that can take the heat without an inordinate demand for water during temporary dry spells.
In the warm climates of USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6 through 9 where Arizona Blue Cypress is a perennial, wintertime landscapes are not often brightened by snow. But the icy-blue foliage of these drought-tolerant trees resembles the look of trees that have been dusted by snow -- a refreshing sight in temperate climates. As an evergreen hedge, Arizona Blue Cypress trees are resplendent, but if you plant only one tree as a prominent focal point in your front yard, you can even decorate it during the holidays!
