The Leyland Cypress is a coniferous tree prized for its fast-growing and hardy nature. Why waste money and maintenance time on a privacy fence when you can use the Leyland Cypress as a carefree, living one?
The Leyland Cypress is a cross between the Nootka and Monterey Cypress, combining their foliage, hardiness and rapid growth into one plant. In fact, you’ll see up to 3 feet of growth each year with the Leyland Cypress.
Don’t worry if you have poor soils as the Leyland is hardy enough to handle it. It will thrive under almost any conditions. The Leyland can reach 60-90 feet in height with 10-15 foot spread in a fraction of the time other evergreens would take to achieve the same.
As if the Leyland isn’t impressive enough for its growth and hardiness, it will also be a particularly beautiful evergreen for your yard. The Leyland maintains a lovely bluish-green color, with an upright pyramidal shape. It will happily accept you trimming it to almost any shape or size and is equally content to maintain its natural compact, conical shape.
For a fast-growing, low-maintenance and hardy evergreen you can’t do better than the Leyland Cypress.
