Leyland Cypressx Cupressocyparis leylandii
Noted for its rapid growth and slender shape, the Leyland cypress has found wide popularity over a large range of the United States. It grows well in a wide variety of soil and climate conditions and makes an excellent wind break, as it provides a dense barrier with good color all 12 months of the year.
This sterile hybrid is produced in great numbers for use in Christmas tree plantations, in windbreaks, and along boundary lines. It also beautifies the landscape around homes, across campuses, and in parks.
