Hi,help please.
Q1 what are your hardiness ratings[which zone is wiltshire]
Q2 what is the rate of growth of cup.arizonica and is it faster/slower than varieties? Please could you make rate of growth a standard part of your plant descriptions.
Q3 where you don't have a buy it now tag does this mean it is not available in the UK?
Q4 where can one find a differential description of plants and their varieties eg cup.arizonica and its variants-- what are the differentiating features? Are such features visible from juvenile or only at maturity?

Hi, W Woods,
1. Cupressus arizonica has a hardiness rating of H4, perfectly suited for Wiltshire (which is classed between H3 and H4).
2. Its growth rate, according to most expert,s is fast since it puts on 25-50cm of height a year. If you look at the entry for this plant here on Shoot and look at the 'Years to Maturity' to the right of the photo, you will get a general idea as to how fast it grows. Since Cupressus arizonica has a mature height of 15m and it potentially reach maturity by 20 years of age, that is pretty fast.
3. Even if it can't be bought through this site, it is available in the UK. I believe Buy it Now links are there because that particularly seller has a business relationship with Shoot - handy for us users!! :)
4. Do a search on Shoot using 'Cupressus arizonica' - you will get the species as well as all cultivars. Reading descriptions and looking at photos will help you see differences. Most features (except dwarfism), particularly leaf variegation, will be visible at juvenile state. Time will show height differenitation.
