Answer: The plant is probably Cupressocyparis leylandii, or Leyland Cypress. It grows very fast (15-20 feet in 5 years) and is often planted in your gardening region as a quick screening. However, it can become open and floppy with age. The plant develops long, slender, upright branches of flattened, gray-green foliage. It grows in a wide variety of soils, tolerates windy sites and prefers full sunshine and regular watering. Leyland Cypress is a pyramidal tree, but in youth looks more like a shrub, similar to Thuja (Pyramidalis).
