Arizona Cypress is one of the most drought and heat resistant evergreens available. It grows into a charming pyramidal shaped tree, with layered branches and lacy, silver-blue foliage that billows in the wind. It can grow 20 to 30 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide. They put on lots of growth when young, up to 2 feet a year. It is ideal for windbreaks, screens, and as a specimen tree. Use it in hot, exposed places for easy beauty.
