3467 Kashmir Cypress ( Cupressus darjeelingensis )
This beautiful evergreen conifer from south Tibet grows to 40 to 60 feet tall. It has a narrowly pyramidal shape with upright main branches and long (often several feet) pendulous branchlets bearing blue-green, aromatic foliage.
Not only is it beautiful but, in the right conditions, it is fast growing, reaching at least 20 feet in the first 10 years. It is a stunning lawn specimen and being evergreen also serves the practical use as a screen or barrier.
Kashmir cypress has a broadly conical, relaxed growth habit, meaning it is less rigid and upright than most cypresses. The foliage, in addition to it glaucous-blue beauty, is very aromatic, and hangs in pendulous, flat sprays. As the tree matures the weeping form becomes more pronounced and elegant.
It is hardy to about 15-20°F.
