The Carolina Sapphire was developed by Clemson University in 1968 after selecting it amongst a group of Arizona Cypress which were growing at Tom Wright’s Christmas Tree Farm in Ward, South Carolina. They maintain a broad pyramidal shape and know to be fast growers. Carolina Sapphires have beautiful silvery-blue scalelike leaves that have a very pleasant aroma. Unlike Cedars and Junipers they do not produce berries but they seed cones which are about an inch in diameter. Carolina Sapphires perform best in full sun and in areas that are well drained. Its most common uses are as privacy screens or a specimen tree. There is a lot of confusion in the industry regarding the scientific name and you could see any of the following names being used: Cupressus arizonica ‘Carolina Sapphire’, Cupressus arizonica var. Glabra ‘Carolina Sapphire’, Cupressus glabra ‘Carolina Sapphire’.
