Cupressus arizonica var. glabra 'Carolina Sapphire'
Upright-growing grey-blue-green conifer. Commonly used as a Christmas tree around here (Texas), although it is an acquired taste in that role for those accustomed to spruces and firs for their holiday decoration. We purchased one as a Christmas tree our first year in Houston, from a saw-your-own lot, and decided to buy a somewhat neglected potted specimen at a local nursery the following year. The first few months, through winter, we grew it in a large pot set in our backyard, but it often blew over in windy weather, winding up worse for the wear from spending more time in horizontal orientation than it appreciated. So in March of the following year, I set it out in the back border behind our pond, where Amy hopes to decorate it for Christmas.
In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
