Carolina Sapphire (Cupressus arizonica 'Carolina Sapphire') is a fast-growing evergreen tree with striking silver-blue foliage. It has a pleasant fragrance and can reach heights of up to 40 feet. Carolina Sapphire is often used as a windbreak or privacy screen due to its dense growth habit. It is also drought-tolerant and can thrive in various soil conditions.

Smooth Arizona Cypress (Cupressus arizonica var. glabra) is another lovely cypress tree with smooth, grayish-green foliage. It has a more compact growth habit compared to Carolina Sapphire, making it suitable for smaller spaces. Smooth Arizona Cypress is also drought-tolerant and can adapt well to different soil types.
