- Frost hardy
- Drought tolerant
- Formal Hedging
Cupressus ‘Private Green’ is a very hardy, slow growing form of cypress with deep green foliage that makes and excellent hedge/screen. It can potentially grow to 10mt tall and 5mt wide given enough time but prunes very well to a narrow tight formal hedge. ‘Private Green’ will grow in many situations including coastal, frost prone and drought prone areas. It prefers well drained fertile soils but will cope in almost any soil.
For hedging and screening, don’t prune the tips out until it has reached the desired height you’re after; only the sides. Because it is fairly slow to grow, it will need less maintenance than faster growing plants such as Pittosporums and Lilly Pilly’s. You just have to be patient.
