A blue hedge?

Haven't you heard about the most famous blue conifer? It's the blue Lawson's cypress "Columnaris"! This sleek conifer is a compact grower with a lovely blue-green colour. The "Columnaris" is an evergreen plant. Perhaps we should say "everblue"? The "Columnaris" conifer is perfect for use as a hedge. It can grow very tall! The "Columnaris" can be planted in a pot or open soil.We deliver the Chamaecyparis lawsoniana as bare-root stock: just the six bare branches and roots. The plants are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already two years old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to branch out faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical.The hedge should be pruned twice per year. Once in the winter and once after the buds open in the spring. During the first few months after planting, make sure that the conifer gets enough water. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. And they need sufficient light in order to grow well. The conifer grows best in full or half sun.

Planting+
Prepare a trench 60-80 cm deep for the Chamaecyparis lawsoniana ‘Columnaris’. Improve the excavated soil with compost and manure. For heavy clay soil add in some sharp sand. Soak the plants in water for one hour before planting. Divide the hedges into the trench, planting three for every metre. You can also plant a double row for an extra wide hedge. The top of the root balls should be flush with ground level in the garden (please note that some land will collapse). Fill with soil, and give them lots of water so that it almost turns into a swamp. It is advised to prune the top of the hedges immediately after planting. Water after planting and regularly during the first year after planting.
Care+
Lawson's Cypress is a strong evergreen conifer that requires little care. Water during dry periods so that the soil does not dry out. During the winter a layer of compost and granulated cow manure will be appreciated.
Specifics+
This evergreen conifer is ideal for a high hedge and can grow up to 3 metres high!
