Plant Highlights

Arizona cypress is a hardy, evergreen tree that grows in the SW including California. It is a tough, medium fast grower that can reach anywhere from 30 to 80 ft high. It has a conical shape, with dense sprays of foliage ranging from gray-green to a brighter blue-green. This tree thrives in poor soils, requires little water and is a handsome option as a screen or windbreak. Birds, pollinators and mammals enjoy it as a forage, nectar and shelter source.
