Carolina Sapphire Arizona Cypress
Cupressus glabra 'Carolina Sapphire'

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

Carolina Sapphire Cypress, also known as Arizona Cypress, is a fast-growing, graceful evergreen tree featuring attractive, lacy, silvery mint-green foliage that provides year round color and texture in the landscape. A super-fast grower to 30' tall and 10-15' wide ideal for screen plantings or specimens. A fine alternative to or in combination with the Leyland Cypress in privacy screen plantings.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright conical to pyramidal form 25 to 30 feet tall and 8-12 feet wide, the Carolina Sapphire Cypress is ideal for use in evergreen privacy screen plantings. 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:  10 feet for privacy screen plantings;  18 feet or more for space between trees




Cultural Preferences

The Silver Smoke 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.
