Cupressus leylandii or Leyland Cypress. Being able to tolerate wind and coastal conditions, drought as well as clay soil, this is considered an excellent hardy tree to add that wall of green you’re looking for… fast! Decorate one for Christmas and you have an instant Christmas tree that keeps growing. Being a conifer, it also does not produce messy fruit or flowers.
