Overall Description


This tree is truly a treat for those who like to collect those special, unique trees you just don't find everyday. Silver Dust Leyland has the same growth characteristics as a regular Leyland, with one amazing difference. The foliage is splotched with patches of creamy fan/white against that classic dark green of a standard Leyland. It is absolutely awesome to look at when they get bid which doesn't take long. Makes a very handsome specimen planting, but can also be used as a privacy screen/windbreak.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
