Cupressocyparis Leylandii "Leighton Green" is a very fast growing, hardy, evergreen conifer. It has the potential to become a large tree if unchecked but it is able to be controlled and hedges beautifully. It has deep green foliage making it a great backdrop for the garden.
It is used extensively on farms and larger properties as large screens and can provide a tight hedge, windbreak and protection for livestock. In the home garden it is used as formal hedging and screening as it provides a tight screen with prunning.
It is very hardy. Prefers a well-drained, fertile soil in a full sun or part shade position, but will tolerate nearly all soil types. Hardy in most conditions, it will do well by the coast or exposed positions, is frost hardy and is drought tolerant once established.
A fast growing conifer with a dense conical habit and attractive dark green foliage. Fantastic consistent growth habit reaching 6 metres in 10 years.

Planting: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so that soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in even if the soil is moist.
Care: Always ensure regular watering is provided for your new plants. The plants may need watering for around 12 weeks or until they are established depending on time of year and weather conditions once planted.
Good mulching will assist to reduce weeds and maintain moisture levels. Maintain fresh growth, shape and promote dense habit by pruning after main flowering time. Feed in early Spring with a good all round fertilizer.
