The Perfect Evergreen for tight Spaces

The Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress is a space saving evergreen that will never grow too large for its space. By only growing to two feet wide, the Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress can comfortably fit in even the smallest landscapes. 

Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress trees are the ideal choice for low maintenance foundation plants or for planting close to structures like homes, sidewalks and driveways. They are widely used in urban areas where other trees can’t fit. 

Their tall and narrow growth habit allows them to thrive in containers, so they can frame entryways and accent porches. 

Aside from being highly functional, Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress trees have a stunning blue-green hue that stands out in the landscape with a vibrant glow. Your home will serve as the perfect backdrop for these cypress trees to pop against.

The Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress Tree’s foliage is textured, light and feathery. It breaks up the landscape by giving it shape and visual appeal. Your friends and neighbors will love gazing at the vivid trees in your landscape instead of boring buildings that all look the same.  

The unique shape of the Wissel’s Saguaro Cypress makes it the must have evergreen. They have branches that grow with an upward curve away from the trunk giving them a similar shape to Saguaro Cacti.

The branches swing out like arms to wave hello or ask for a high five. They will greet your guests with a perky wave and invite them into your landscape to enjoy your beautiful home and garden.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Wissel's Saguaro Cypress

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Wissel's Saguaro Cypress.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Wissel's Saguaro Cypress gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Wissel's Saguaro Cypress again after the transplant is complete.
