Thrives on Neglect and Drought
Why Drought Tolerant Evergreen Trees?
One of the top benefits is right in the name: The Drought Tolerant Evergreen Tree thrives on neglect, forming a thick privacy screen through an array of tough conditions. In fact, it's also adaptable to various soil types and is actually the most drought tolerant of any evergreen.
Also known as the Blue Sapphire Cypress, this hardy tree stands up to the extreme weather conditions that damage and even kill most evergreens. These trees are also referred to as the Arizona Cypress in arid, Southwestern regions. Basically, the Drought Tolerant Evergreen is an extremely versatile tree that can be planted anywhere within its growing zones.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Drought Tolerant Evergreens prefer a location with full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Choose an area with soil that drains well, away from poorly-drained, soggy areas.
Prepare your soil before planting the Evergreen by adding organic materials including sphagnum peat moss, manure, and compost in a 1- to 3-inch layer over the planting area. Dig the hole as deep as and approximately twice the width of the root ball. Holding the tree, carefully place it into the hole and make sure that the roots are not curling upwards. Then, cover the hole with the removed soil mix, making sure the tree is upright, and cover the entire planting area with an organic mulch.
2. Watering: Once the roots are established, your Drought Tolerant Evergreen should not need any supplemental watering. Be sure to inspect the tree and surrounding soil for extreme dryness during extended winter dry spells and water if necessary.
3. Fertilizing: Evergreen trees don't require much fertilizer. We recommend not fertilizing unless your evergreen begins losing its dark green color due to a lack of nutrients. If necessary, just a tablespoon of balanced fertilizer (labeled 12-12-12) sprinkled on top of the ground around the tree is sufficient.

Customer Reviews & Photos

These evergreen trees were packed in a heavyweight box. They were secured in there. And the pots were sealed with plastic wrap. So I was happy with the trees looking healthy and not broken apart. I recommend FGT for their care in packaging. And the size of the trees was correct. As I ordered.
I am so pleased with the entire process of my order! The trees arrived fast and are beautiful! Definitely will buy more!
They have been tolerant, so far...
Trees arrived in great shape. Planted them the next day. They are doing great!
