This evergreen has been an under used tree in recent years but is making a comeback as availability and new varieties have become available. Its very thick foliage provides an instant fence and a beautiful backdrop to any back yard garden. There are color variations within the species with some having a rich green color to more of a blue hue. It requires full sunlight and good soil to thrive. With some quick soil amendments though, that is quickly remedied. A Leland Cypress provides choice to a field of trees mainly dominated by the White Pine, so it is definitely a beautiful option that we recommend.
