Cupressus Arizonica Fastigiata (Blue Arizona Cypress)
Attractive and resilient, this evergreen tree has eye-catching blue and white foliage. The leaves grow in dense bunches, giving them a furry appearance.
As its name suggests, the Blue Arizona Cypress is native to the North American states of Arizona and New Mexico – meaning it prefers dry climates. Cypress trees are vigorous, evergreens with flaking or scaly bark. The Blue Arizona’s usual shape is a pointed column, or egg-like with a pointed top. Their needle-shaped leaves are small and aromatic.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. The size of conifers can vary from 100cm shrubs to 60m tall trees. In fact even a slow-growing miniature conifer may grow up to 3m (10ft) tall at maturity.
