Raywood's Weeping Arizona cypress is a narrow, upright evergreen conifer tree with branches of pale silver to steel blue foliage. The short branch tips gracefully weep. Native to the southwestern United States, the undersides of the scaley leaves are covered in white resin glands. Small, prickled, round cones add seasonal interest as does the smooth reddish bark before it becomes mundane gray.
A sunny, dry location is needed to grow Arizona cypress with soils that are well-drained. Amend clay soils with grit or organic matter and avoid highly alkaline pH ground. The upright, architecturally interesting silhouette of 'Raywood's Weeping' make it suitable for lone specimen use. It is not a long-lived tree in climates with cool summers or lots of humidity year round with little air circulation. Heavy, wet soil ensures Arizona cypress death.
