Charming pom pon topiary fashioned from Cupressus arizonica ‘Fastigiata’ (Arizona cypress).
As its name suggests, the Blue Arizona Cypress is native to the North American states of Arizona and New Mexico, where it enjoys the dry climate. Cypress trees are vigorous-growing evergreens with flaking or scaly bark. The Blue Arizona’s usual shape is a pointed column, or an egg-like oval with a pointed top. Their needle-shaped leaves are aromatic and they grow in dense bunches, giving them a furry appearance.
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. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
