Blue Ice Cypress is my all time favorite evergreen.

There are four specimens in my yard. Blue Ice Cypress is a type of Arizona Cypress known as Cupressus arizonica glabra ‘Blue Ice’. This tree is a conifer with very pretty silvery blue-gray foliage in dense sprays. The needles are spirally arranged and retain their frosty blue-gray color all year. Male and female flowers occur on the same tree in spring. Dime-sized cones shaped like tiny blue soccer balls occur along with the yellow-tipped pollen bearing spikes.
