Description

The Blue Ice Cypress is sure to bring plenty of cool color interest to your landscape! This evergreen provides all-season blue-green to whitish blue foliage. It appears 'flocked' in the landscape, which makes it a perfect choice for decorating around Christmas time. Additionally, it features a piney scent that's sure to remind you of crisp fall evenings.

The Blue Ice Cypress grows in a naturally pyramidal shape. Therefore, feel free to plant this beauty and let it do its thing. No maintenance required!

It's no slouch when it comes to growth speed. In ideal conditions it will grow 1-2 feet every year! For this reason, it's great for spots that you want filled in quickly.

Plant the Blue Ice Cypress around 7-8 feet apart for a gorgeous, fragrant privacy screen that'll never leave you short on coverage. For space between trees, plant them 15+ feet apart.

A single tree makes an eye-catching specimen in the middle of your landscape. Plant shorter, contrasting color plants around it for maximum effect.

Plant a small group of Blue Ice Cypress set back from the road. Then, wrap them in Christmas lights yearly for an easy, head-turning holiday display.

Leave room for growth as this beauty can reach 30' H x 15' W at maturity, slightly smaller than the Carolina Sapphire Arizona Cypress.

Blue Ice Cypress Care

This cypress is hardy from USDA Zones 7-9.

Plant in Full Sun for best results. Too much shade will result in decreased foliage potential.

This tree can tolerate numerous different soil qualities and pHs, but it prefers soil with good drainage and average richness. Furthermore, it works well in rocky Xeriscape gardens.

Water regularly when establishing, especially in sand or rocky soil. After the first couple of growing seasons, the Blue Ice Cypress is remarkably drought tolerant.

Fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer regularly to encourage maximum growth speed, such as 10-8-8 NPK.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Blue Ice Cypress Spacing Recommendations

For a fast-growing privacy screen, plant your Blue Ice Cypress 6-8 feet apart. For a casual screen space them 12-15+ feet apart.
