Emerald Isle® Leyland Cypress
x Cupressocyparis leylandii 'Moncal'
|Description||A neat, uniform shape that needs no trimming when used in natural form. Graceful yet strong, fairly narrow pyramidal growth with soft, bright green foliage on flat sprays. An excellent tall screen or windbreak. Use formal topiary shapes to accent borders or entryways, in containers or in the landscape. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Grows 25 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide in natural form.|
|Landscape Use||Hedge, Privacy Screen, Windbreak|
|Design Ideas||A cold hardy alternative to Italian cypress that adds Mediterranean character to landscapes. Outstanding against warm colored stucco walls or in conjunction with rectangular Moroccan style swimming pools. Exploit the columnar form in formal garden design by using as a matched pair to flank doorway, gate, art or a fountain. Use in the English style to create a staccato background of deep green colonnade at the back of a mixed border. Tall enough to provide screening from neighboring second story windows when more tightly spaced.|
|Companion Plants||Magnolia (Magnolia); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Spirea (Spiraea); Rose (Rosa); Pomegranate (Punica)|
|Care||Thrives in deep, well-drained, average to enriched soils, but highly adaptable. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
