Introducing the stunning Hesperocyparis lusitanica Cedar-of-Goa, also known as the Mexican Cypress or Mexican White Cedar. Native to Mexico and Central America, this evergreen tree grows up to 40m tall with a conic to ovoid-conic crown. It has drooping branchlets and dark green to somewhat yellow-green foliage that grows in dense sprays. The seed cones are globose to oblong and green at first, maturing brown or grey-brown about 25 months after pollination. This fast-growing and drought-tolerant tree has been introduced to different parts of the world and is widely cultivated as an ornamental tree and for timber production. It has been planted for windbreak curtains, fighting soil erosion and creating artificial forests in lands originally lacking. Don't miss the chance to add this stunning tree to your collection.
