The Q&A Archives: Shade And Leland Cypress

Question: Will Leland Cypress flourish in a shaded area area? I want to use them as a tall screen. Or, can you suggest an alternative for the southeastern U.S.?

Answer: Star,

Few plants make good dense screens in a shady spot. Leyland is a fair choice if the spot is not too shaded and has some decent soil drainage. Other options include eastern red cedar, American holly and cherry laurel.

Thanks for the question!
