The ‘Blue Ice’ Arizona Cypress is a conical-growing evergreen tree of the cypress family. With its striking blue-gray foliage arranged in dense sprays ‘Blue Ice’ is a wonderful addition to the ornamental conifer garden.
Its needles can also be flecked with whitish spots of resin, which makes up the waxy coating and are quite aromatic, especially when crushed. The smooth, flaking reddish-purple bark and round chocolate-colored cones only adds to its uniqueness.
‘Blue Ice’ provides a dramatic focal point in your landscape and makes a beautiful backdrop for contrasting shrubs and flowers. ‘Blue Ice’ is a cypress slower growing and highly adaptable to hot, dry, desert-like conditions and a great choice for areas that tend to be dry for long periods.
