Our Cypress selection includes some of the most widely used & sought after Cypress varieties used in both home & commercial landscapes today. Leyland Cypress - in a few different colors, the fast growing Arizona Cypress, and even the eye catching Gold Thread Cypress, are all incredibly popular landscape choices. Popular uses can include privacy screens and borders, with Arizona & Leyland Cypress both being a great choice for windbreaks.

Cypress is available in a wide variety of colors, textures, and growth habits. Greens, yellows, silvery blue tones, and even variegated foliage are all available - with growth habits ranging from the larger pyramidal habit of the Leyland & Arizona Cypress, to the mounding, threadlike foliage of the Gold Thread. Most are all very hardy, and rather drought tolerant as well.
