‘Carolina Sapphire’ is great screening evergreen tree–plant 7 feet apart. A fast grower, about 1-2 feet per year. It does best in full to partial sun. The beautiful silvery blue / teal coloration stays year round. Moderately salt tolerant. Prefers well drained / sandy soil.
Drought tolerant once established, and easily withstands our heat and humidity of summer.
Flaky, reddish-purple bark that adds visual interest, especially on mature specimens where the trunk and large branches are visible through the foliage.
‘Carolina Sapphire’ cones are oval-to-round in shape, appearing first in greenish-silver color and then darkening to a reddish brown.
