Leylandii hedge plants, or x Cupressocyparis leylandii to use the Latin name, are the fastest growing of all hedging plants and are popular for their evergreen sprays of fragrant green foliage. Kept trimmed, Leylandii hedge plants make a wonderful conifer feature that will create a dense screen, reduce noise pollution and act as an effective windbreak.
The mid to dark green foliage of Leylandii conifers, also known as the Leyland Cypress, creates a quick, dense privacy screen, that lasts through all seasons. Leylandii hedge plants are a cost effective choice, forming a popular garden hedge that provides cover for a variety of wildlife, giving added interest.
x Cupressocyparis leylandii is perfect for achieving privacy cover quickly, as it is very fast growing. The compact green foliage of Leylandii hedge plants means they also make a fantastic windbreak and sound barrier. Kept tidy, this conifer creates a lovely formal, evergreen hedging feature, or can be left a little shaggy for a less formal effect.
x Cupressocyparis leylandii is commonly grown alone; however, you can combine with Golden Leylandii hedge plants (Cupressocyparis leylandii Castlewellan Gold) for a two-tone effect.
Leylandii hedge plants have a very fast growth rate, achieving 75 - 90 cm a year and will reach heights of between 2m and 6m tall.
As you cannot clip Leylandii hedging back into old wood, at Best4hedging, we advise regular pruning between April and the end of August. It is possible to clip your Leylandii hedge plants on three occasions during this time to keep your hedge neat and encourage healthy growth. Before pruning, always check for bird nests. Please view our Hedging Care Advice page for more information.
