Cypress Overview

Originating in Arizona, USA, this pyramidal species will grow to 50 ft (15 m). Its mature foliage is grey-green and does not display the white spots of the smooth Arizona cypress. It has short-stalked, large, round cones, up to 1 in (25 mm) across, and a brown, stringy and furrowed bark.

How to propagate Cypress

Seed

Propagate by seed sown in autumn or spring (but forms selected for leaf colour do not come true).

Cuttings

Evergreen current growth cuttings in autumn to spring. Deciduous softwood cuttings in summer.

Other uses of Cypress

Hedging, specimen, raw materials. Suitable for coastal conditions.
