Shorty Leyland Cypress

This dwarf version of Leyland cypress has striking foliage of rich green with bluish tones. Popular in the south for its ability to handle the heat and humidity, SHORTY is an excellent choice for use as a hedge or as a focal point in the landscape. Slower growing than its hybrid parent, it has a compact upright habit and can be lightly sheared annually to keep it even tighter. Drought tolerant once established.
