Cupressocyparis (X) leylandii 'Blue Jeans'
Precious in nurseries and recommended for hedges.
The vegetation of this clone is bushy and wide; 'Blue Jeans' grows from several stems. It branches well and can show young foliage at the base.
It grows fast and does not need to be staked if grown in containers.
Its blue-green colour is original.
Its resistance to cold has been proved in Holland.
Its adaptation to pruning makes it very interesting for monospecific hedges.
