Leyland Cypress
Cupressocyparis leylandii 

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-910a  Find Your Zone

Note: For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 6a, 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 said, it will need a well-lit indoor location and will eventually need to be transplanted to the landscape when it becomes too large for a container.



Special Attributes

Leyland Cypress has become one of the most popular evergreen privacy tree's since it came on the scene in the 1970's. A very fast grower to 30-40' tall and 8-12' wide, when planted right and in the right spot. It is popular for its formal, pyramidal shape and its ability to establish a quick privacy screen or buffer.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright conical to pyramidal form 30 to 40 feet tall and 8-12 feet wide, the Leyland Cypress is ideal for use to form a quick evergreen privacy screen, where if desired 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' apart for hedges or screens; 20' or more apart for space between trees




Cultural Preferences

The Leyland Cypress is easy to grow in most any most but well-drained soil of average fertility and full to mostly sun. It is low maintenance requiring little if any pruning to keep its naturally pyramidal form.
