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 #7 pot with a minimum height of 48 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.
