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 anythinggreen.com 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.
