Well named--the amazing silver-blue color of this Arizona Cypress cultivar rivals that of any other conifer for intense color; name-appropriate in another way also, this tree is extremely tolerant of wind ; cold. SUN/Med-Dry/GdDrain

Blue Ice is blue. It is not a small conifer; it will grow to 25' before you know it and 15' wide, but if you have the space, it is a beauty. Can stand wind but needs decent drainage. Zone 5.

This form is often confused with C. arizonica but differs in that the outer bark sheds annually. Symmetrical and upright in growth and shape. The foliage is indeed frosty, silvery blue.

Ghostly white-blue color make put this selection into a class of its own. Drought tolerant trees to 20' tall 12' wide. Make room for one.
