Hedges and Screens, Tolerates Hard Frost

Plant Highlights

This is a fast-growing and hardy cypress that does well with little water. It has a rich light green foliage and seems to tolerate coastal planting well for an inland species. It makes an ideal hedge or screen, or can be used as a specimen tree in a large garden.
