Blue Ice Arizona Cypress
Cupressus glabra 'Blue Ice'

The Blue Ice Cypress is one of the most eye-catching plants in our nursery, and in our gardens. It grows exceptionally fast to about 20 to 30 feet in height with a spread of about 10 to 15 feet at maturity. The outstanding light, silver-blue foliage provides a wonderful contrast in the landscape. The foliage color and texture contrast nicely with just about any other plants nearby. Great for use as a single focal specimen, to frame tall corners, or for screen planting or a wind buffer.  

The Blue Cypress is easy to grow in a location that provides well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. It is low maintenance requiring little if any pruning to keep it's natural, conical form. The tree should have full sun, good wintertime drainage and be allowed to fend for itself.. USDA Zones 7a-9b  Find Your Zone >
