Jason’s Plant Pick of the Week – Arizona Cypress

Posted on September, 02

If you like delicate icy-blue needles AND need to block the view of your neighbor’s hot tub, look no further than the Arizona Cypress, Jason’s Plant Pick of the Week. This fast-growing evergreen shrub is a wonderful compliment to your leafy green trees and shrubs, and makes an excellent wind break or screen plant, especially when planted in a row. It will maintain a naturally conical shape, and reach heights of up to 40 feet, with a width of up to 30 feet. It’s a feathery giant! Even though it looks like it belongs on a snowy¬† mountain, the Arizona Cypress likes hot and dry conditions, so once it’s established, be sure not to over-water.
