Cupressus darjeelingensis (Kashmir Cypress, Himalayan Cypress, Darjeeling Weeping Cypress, Hesperocyparis cashmeriana )
Cupressus darjeelingensis (Kashmir Cypress, Himalayan Cypress, Darjeeling Weeping Cypress, Hesperocyparis cashmeriana ) is a beautiful evergreen conifer native to Tibet, growing 40 to 60 feet tall. It has a narrowly pyramidal shape with upright main branches and long (often several feet) pendulous branchlets bearing blue-green, aromatic foliage.
Kashmir Cypress has a broadly conical, more relaxed growth habit, meaning it is less rigid and upright than most Cypresses. The foliage, in addition to it glaucous-blue beauty, is very aromatic, and hangs in pendulous, flat sprays. As the tree matures the weeping form becomes more pronounced and elegant. The fruit are small, round, marble-shaped cones that ripen to a rich coppery brown color.
