    Blue Ice "Arizona Cypress"

Product Description

Want to bring that snow-capped look to your evergreens without the snow? The “Blue Ice” variety of the Arizona Cypress is the solution. This low-maintenance tree is planted primarily for its screening and privacy uses, but it’s widely recognizable for its elegant, blue-green foliage that appears to have that lightly “snowed-on” look. It’s an eye-catcher in any landscape. It functions similarly to the Leyland and Murray cypress, and the Arizona Cypress “Blue Ice” also omits a wonderful fragrance. That’s why we here at especially love to ship this one. Hardiness zones are 7-9, and tolerances include dry soil, salt and heat, although extreme temperatures in the summer months can depreciate its attractiveness. Hence the name, this is a plant native to the Southwest, but it is also a popular plant in the Southeast. It can withstand hot temperatures and prefers well-drained soil, full sun and hot and dry conditions. The Arizona Cypress “Blue Ice” can reach a mature height of 30 feet and mature width of 8 to 10 feet. Its growth rate is within the 2 to 3 feet per year range. Recommended spacing is 5 to 6 feet.

Arizona Cypress 'Blue Ice'
Great trees and well suited to central texas. Review by diy_man
These are great trees for central Texas. I have planted many over the last several years. Once they get 4-5 foot tall, they are quite drought tolerant and withstand heat and cold. I've never lost a larger tree, although replants might be needed until they are well established. As an aromatic tree, they smell nice and termites don't like them.

Put a sprinkler in a big one on a hot day, and it's like a natural cooling tower, with the needles breaking up the falling water spray and cooling the air to near the wet bulb temperature. They smell great. Get right in there with the tree and cool off on a hot day ! No joke. (Posted on 4/16/2011)

You know you'll add some interest to your landscape with these; can't wait 'til these pretty trees grow more :) Review by Nancy
We're using them to add beauty and some privacy along our property lines and we're going to put some type of complimentary different colored bushes/hedges in-between :) (Posted on 4/6/2010)
