An evergreen, Leyland Cypress is prized for its densely packed, bright-green emerald foliage and easy to care for features. It requires low to moderate water use once established and loves to grow where there is plenty of full sun exposure. Since it’s tolerant of most soil types, it is a good choice for the Houston area. Once planted and established, very little work is required to keep it looking good. Leyland Cypress trees will grow in a uniform, symmetrical columnar shape even without trimming!
