Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CUPRESSUS arizonica var. glabra 'Blue Pyramid'
A selection of Arizona cypress, ‘Blue Pyramid’ is a large, slow-growing evergreen conifer with blue-gray foliage and an upright, pyramidal shape. The underside of its tiny, scale-like leaves is covered in white resin glands. Small, prickled, round cones add seasonal interest. The bark is smooth and reddish. The parent species is native to the southwestern U.S.
Give ‘Blue Pyramid’ a sunny, dry location and well-drained soil. It is not a good choice for climates with humidity and wet summers. Used it for large screens or windbreaks. It also makes a nice specimen evergreen in an unirrigated lawn or the median of a parking lot.
