Features & Highlights
- MURRAY CYPRESS The Murray Cypress is a variant of the Leyland Cypress. Like the previously mentioned Leyland, the Murray Cypress' primary function is for privacy purposes. This quickly-growing evergreen is ideal for creating privacy on property. With a growth rate of three feet per year , the Murray Cypress matures at a height of 30 to 40 feet. Recommended spacing is 5 to 10 feet apart for screening.
- Another wildly-growing function for the Murray Cypress is its use as a Christmas tree. It retains its beautiful color year round, and its limbs are notably stronger than those of the Leyland. Murray Cypress is able to withstand cold temperatures, surviving in brutal winds and icy conditions. It's hardy in zones 6-10, meaning the Murray Cypress is capable of thriving in temperatures ranging from -10 degrees to 40 degrees.
- Another benefit of planting one or multiple Murray Cypresses is the tree's resiliency to fungus. Mature Height: 25-40 ft. Mature Width: 6-10 ft. Sunlight: Full - Partial Drought Tolerance: Moderate Botanical Name: Murray X Cypress Pruning: Shearing is an excellent way to control the trees size. For a formal hedge you can start shearing when the tree reaches 3 or 4 feet in height. Shear only the sides, remove no more than 3 or 4 inches of growth.
- This will cause the tree to grow thicker. If you want the tree to grow tall do not cut the top leader, just shape the sides. The best time to shear is after a new growth spurt finishes and the new growth begins to mature. Shearing twice a year is sufficient. To keep your trees at a desired height will require cutting the central leader and then shearing all outside branches. This will control the trees size for many years, but eventually may get to large to keep at a smaller size.
