Product Overview

The Leyland Cypress is a fast-growing evergreen tree with a pyramidal shape. The tree's dense growth and tall height make it a great choice for creating a border shade that will block unwanted sights and reduce neighborhood noise. Besides its utility, this evergreen is nice to look at with feathery soft, textured leaves. The tree grows 3 ft. to 4 ft. per year and reaches a height of about 60 ft. to 70 ft. and a spread of 15 ft. to 25 ft. The Leyland is drought tolerant and hardy in Zones 6-10. The plant is shipped in a #3 pot with a minimum height of 18 in. The Leyland should be planted in full sun but can tolerate most types of soil, as long as they are well-drained. Once planted, prune for the first few years in order to encourage dense growth.

I planted several of them in a row. They grow big and fast. 8 feet spacing is about right. Do not buy them sight unseen. In several years they will close in the 8 foot gap. Give the at least 4 feet from your property line. You should look for trees at least 3 to 4 feet high. John K.

The plant arrived with the dirt spilled out of the pot and branches growing only on one side. I planted it anyhow in hopes that it may survive but it doesn't look like it's going to make it.
