The Q&A Archives: Leyland cypress

Question: Please tell me why I have little clusters of buds or flowers at ends of leyland cypress almost all branches. What does this mean and are they in stress. Pls respond. Thanks CARYL

Answer: What you are seeing are seed pods (Leyland Cypress's version of cones such as you might see on pine trees). They will dry out, open, and then virtually disappear. Nothing to worry about.
