Cupressus glabra, Arizona Cypress

Cupressus glabra 
 Arizona Cypress
This lovely silver -blue foliaged conifer is one of the hardiest and most easily grown, tolerating coastal exposure, hot dry conditions as well as cold winters down to minus 20C. It is perhaps not as popular as other Cypress as it tends to be fairly open in growth habit making it less suitable for use as a hedge. It will grow to about 8 to 10 metres and forms a great background tree to a Mediterranean style garden with Olive trees, dry loving perennials and succulents. It is native to Arizona and N. Mexico.
