This wonderful fast-growing false cypress (15' tall x 8' wide in ten years) features soft, feathery blue foliage with silver streaking. Discovered as a sport of C. pisifera 'Squarrosa' at the Boulevard Nursery of Newport in 1934, this wonderful evergreen conifer is a welcome accent specimen in any garden... especially valuable for adding color in the winter. Don't plant Boulevard cypress in a location where it will get excessively dry during the droughty summer months.
