Zones 6-10

  • Clear



The Leyland Cypress (x Cupressocyparis leylandii) is noted for its rapid growth and slender shape and is one of America’s favorite trees. Leyland grows well in a wide variety of soil and climate conditions and makes an excellent windbreak as it provides a dense barrier with good color all 12 months of the year. Leyland is an evergreen tree, keeping its foliage year-round and grows to a height of 60–70′  with a spread of 15–25′ at maturity. The growth is considered a fast rate, with height increases of more than 24″ per year. Can be pruned and shaped repeatedly without harm. Grows in an oval or pyramidal shape if not pruned. Is a popular choice for hedges and boundaries but requires annual pruning. The Leyland cypress grows well in acidic, alkaline, loamy, moist, rich, sandy, well-drained and clay soils.

Plant 4-15ft apart.

Full sun is recommended
