Callitropsis X leylandii

Leyland Cypress is a fast growing coniferous evergreen growing to 40 feet tall and 10 feet wide. It has a pyramidal habit. This plant has a very rapid growth rate and is widely used as a screening plant. It can also be used as a very stately specimen and I have seen it tightly sheared and sold as a cut or B&B Christmas tree.
