Product Details

Small specimens are 1.5-2m tall.

Cupressocyparis leylandii Castlewellan, known as Golden Leyland Cypress, is a quick growing hedging conifer bred in County Down in the 1960s.

It is slower than ordinary green Leyland Cypress so easier to maintain. It will grow on most well drained soils and can even thrive on quite exposed sites.

The best time to prune a Cupressocyparis leylandii Castlewellan to keep the hedge to the dimensions required is in April / May and never prune off into older wood as it won’t grow back.

Mature Height: 7-12m
