 ‘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.
