Blue Ice Arizona Cypress
Cupressus glabra 'Blue Ice'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note: For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Cypress tree is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring. That saod, it will need a well-lit indoor location.

Special Attributes

A very fast grower, the Blue Ice Cypress is one of the most eye-catching plants in our gardens. The stunning silver-blue foliage provides outstanding color and texture in the landscape that contrasts nicely with almost every other type of landscape plant. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright conical form 20 to 30 feet tall and 8-12 feet wide, the Blue Ice Cypress is ideal for use in evergreen privacy screen plantings, where it can be mixed with other evergreens to create a pleasing effect. It is also useful to frame in the corners of tall homes and other buildings or as a specimen or background anywhere in sunny landscape borders. A fine addition to conifer gardens, bird gardens, wildlife gardens and Xeriscape gardens (low water needs). Perfect for an outdoor Christmas tree!

Suggested Spacing:  8-10 feet for privacy screen plantings;  16 feet or more for space between trees

Cultural Preferences

The Blue Ice Cypress is tolerant of a wide range of soils, even clay, preferring a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and plenty of sunshine. Will tolerate light shade, but plants in full to mostly sun are much fuller. Minimal to no maintenance, no pruning necessary to keep its dense, naturally conical form. Exceptionally drought tolerant when established.
