Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Columnaris Glauca'
Described by one nursery owner as a 'blue Italian Cypress' look. This tree has that iconic narrow 'spire' appearance so often referred to as a 'Italian Cypress'. And it is blue! It is somewhat similar to 'Blue Surprise', but grows taller. You can expect this one to be 12-15 ft tall in 10 years. As with all Lawson Cypress the drainage must be very good or the tree will be lost. These trees are grafted onto a root rot resistant understock, so we expect these trees to be easier to grow and thrive. I would still recommend planting in a raised bed to be safe. Can grow in full sun or part shade and is hardy to zone 5.
