Cupressocyparis Leylandii (Green Hedge)
A cone-shaped conifer tree whose leaves are a mix of greenish-grey and greenish-blue – this colouring becomes more obvious in winter.
Naylor’s Blue is a fast grower than can reach heights of 15m (even in poor soil) and they grow successfully in most weather types. These evergreen’s are a popular choice for hedging and for marking property boundaries. Be careful when using them as a privacy barrier though – as their rapid growth will mean that surrounding areas are quickly overshadowed and may need to be trimmed back.
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.
