A cone-shaped conifer tree whose leaves are a mix of greenish-grey and greenish-blue – this colouring becomes more obvious in winter.
Our Green Cypress Hedge is a fast-grower than can reach heights of 15m (even in poor soil) and they are grown successfully in locations all over the UK. The rapid growth of a Green Cypress Hedge will mean that surrounding areas can be quickly overshadowed and it will probably need to be pruned back each year. Their tall and slender shape makes them an elegant choice whether displayed individually, or collected into rows.
All of our Hedging Plants allow you to style your garden in a range of different ways, not just because of their varied colours, but also because of the way you choose to trim and maintain them. Prune them regularly to achieve a neat, clean form, or let them bush-out a little to create a more natural appearance. Whether you’re using a hedge to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance. All of our Hedging Plants have evergreen foliage – giving you some pleasant greenery to look at all-year-round.
