Description

The Carolina Sapphire Cypress is a fast growing evergreen that features lacy, silvery-blue foliage. It can grow 20 to 30 feet tall and maintains a pyramidal shape.

This tree is a great alternative to a privacy fence. Not only is this evergreen fast growing, but it is also deer, disease, and insect resistant! Just plant these trees in the ground for a lovely accent tree or use as a wind barrier for your property. No extra pruning or pesticide treatments will be needed for this tree, unlike many evergreens.

The Carolina Sapphire Cypress maintains a tall and compact shape naturally. Drought tolerant, this tree only requires watering until established. This evergreen tree will be easy to grow with no extra work needed. Sapphire Cypress prefers full sun and does not require any special soil conditions. For a defined privacy or wind barrier along your property, it is recommended to plant these trees 6-7 ft. apart. You can also choose to only plant 1 of these trees as a focal point or to provide an accent next to your home.

There are many fast growing, evergreen trees to choose from. The Sapphire Cypress offers you the peace of mind that it will continue to flourish for years to come with no extra maintenance required.

How To Care

Be sure to choose the best location for your Carolina Sapphire Cypress. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant this tree almost any time of the year.

They thrive in full sun to part sun and can adapt to any soil that is well drained. They do like a neutral to acidic soil so if you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer (most fertilizers for evergreens are acidic). After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist and cool. Mulch can also protect the roots during cold temperatures.

Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Cypress tree deeply a couple times a week for the first few months. After your tree is established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. When planting be sure to mix the fertilizer into the ground soil well before placing your new plant in the hole to prevent fertilizer burn. These trees rarely need pruning.

Rarely encounters issues with pests or disease. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. It is important to avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues.

Carolina Sapphires

Carolina Sapphires: I installed 65 five to six foot Carolina Sapphires on front and rear property boundaries. These are beautiful evergreen trees that make the yard feel like Christmas year round. They are a beautiful blue soft tree that smells great. These trees are thriving weeks after installation, and I can actually see these trees growing. Ordering User Interface: I found the Plantingtree.com website easy to use. I was able to search and filter for various plants quickly. The images were very good, and the information for each plant was well organized and presented methodically. I was able to make selections and move through the checkout process rapidly. I was able to request specific shipping dates and/or special instructions during the check-out process. Value: My experience with Plantingtree.com is that their pricing is very competitive, and you know you will receive healthy, high quality uniform plants for any installation. Shipping: During the online ordering process, I was able to specify specific ship dates which Plantingtree.com used to send the plants at the dates requested. The plants were shipped in a timely manner; mine arrived within a day or two after they shipped. When they arrived, the packaging kept them safe and hydrated, so they were in great condition on arrival. Health After Planting: I had multiple orders of assorted plants, which were all installed between August and early November. It is late November at the time of this review, and all my plants are thriving. Health after installation has been great. Customer Support: Customer Support for Plantingtree.com was outstanding. I had to update the number trees I purchased several times and they were helpful in ensuring that I was able to receive plants of the same size for a large installation. The team was very personable and truly wanted to ensure a great user experience. Other Recommendations: All the plants I received from Plantingtree.com were in excellent condition and I have few recommendations for purchasers to ensure long term plant health: select plants that work for your growing conditions; do site prep work before plants arrive; open your shipment of plants immediately; water immediately; plant as soon as possible and use Biotone Starter Plus to get them a great start; stake your young trees; use biodegradable soft ties when staking; mulch your plants to prevent weeds and reduce amount of watering required, and water according to directions adjusting if necessary (i.e. warmer than usual fall).

Two 4-5 foot trees arrived healthy

Ordered two 4-5 foot trees on Monday and they arrived on Sunday in great condition. Planted the same day, here they are with another larger Carolina Sapphire Cypress that was planted last year.
