A Straight-Shooting, Easy-Growing Evergreen

Why Green Rocket Cypress Trees?

The Green Rocket Leyland Cypress is the ideal tree for year-round greenery. With a naturally straight growth pattern, you’ll spend less time in maintenance mode, and more time reaping the benefits.

This new introduction grows tall, falling into a perfect pyramid with tall, narrow growth. Its conical shape enhances the classic evergreen aesthetic, with flat branches and deep green foliage. When young, the Green Rocket's trunk is smooth - mature trunks will be lightly ridged and flaking.

Looking for height? You're in the right place. The Green Rocket Leyland Cypress will tower over most, reaching as high as 35 feet tall while maintaining a narrow shape. It makes a perfect privacy screen or windbreak, and when planted together, they provide excellent shade.

Easy-growing, with excellent pest- and disease-resistance as well as heat tolerance, the Green Rocket is the perfect evergreen addition to your landscape.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Leyland Cypresses grow to heights of 25-35 feet with a canopy that can spread out to about 8 feet. If you want a taller hedge, screen or windbreak, young trees should be spaced at least 8-10 feet apart. If you're growing a hedge, a space of 4-5 feet between trees is ideal. It will take about five to seven years for the space between the trees to fill.

To plant your Green Rocket, find a spot in full sun and dig a planting hole twice the size of the root ball and as deep as the soil in the container. Center the tree in the planting hole and back fill with soil. Create a watering ring around the perimeter of the planting hole (this helps divert water to the outer roots). Mulch with at least three inches of compost or pulverized bark.

2. Watering: Water your Green Rocket Leyland Cypress with at least an inch of water per week, keeping the soil moist but not oversaturated - generally, we recommend letting a garden hose run for about 1 to 3 minutes per week, depending on your soil. The deeper you water the tree, the better the tree will grow.

If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: If your Leyland Cypress needs fertilizer at all, it should be fertilized with a shrub and tree fertilizer, unless a soil test shows that nutrients are low or missing. If the soil is missing or low on nutrients, use a nutrient-specific fertilizer.

4. Pruning: These trees require very little pruning. You may want to consider pruning if you are using them as a hedge; however, for the most part, they require little to no pruning.

Questions & Answers

Why Leyland Cypress Trees?

The Leyland Cypress is America's most planted privacy tree for a reason. For starters, this amazing tree grows up to 3 to 5 feet each year, boasts feathery soft, lush foliage, and is drought tolerant. Strength and beauty in one? The Leyland delivers.

Well-known for their iconic columnar silhouettes, Leyland Cypresses grow very fast and thicken to create a solid wall. And their textured foliage is soft to the touch - no unpleasant thorns or prickly leaves. Plus, it stays green year-round, giving you complete privacy. Though your Leyland Cypress grows rapidly, it's easily pruned to your desired shape and height. But even without trimming, your Leyland Cypress trees will grow in a uniform, symmetrical shape that gives you a dense, living wall.

Cypress, Leyland (4 pack)

We have bought plants on-line from several growers. FastGrowing Trees is the best so far. The plants came when promised and the packaging was excellent. I ordered plants in the 3 to 4 foot range and all of them were as advertised. That is not always the case with on-line plants. The plants all looked very good on arrival and have not faltered at all since we planted them. Thank you FGT!
