We no longer grow this plant as it is highly susceptible to bagworms and is not proving itself winter hardy with advanced age and size. As it is a hybrid between the coastal California Monterey cypress and the more northern Nootka cypress, the cold intolerance of the coastal species makes it susceptible to damage in extreme winter conditions. 

We recommend planting northern arbor vitae (Thuja occidentalis), or 'Green Giant' arbor vitae which is virtually maintenance free, as well as pest and disease-resistant, making it a superior alternative to the  Leyland cypress (x Cupressocyparis leylandii).  Additionally, deer grazing does not appear to be a problem for these hardy trees, especially 'Green Giant'—certainly a beneficial quality for our landscape plants.
