Cunninghamia lanceolata Glauca Taxodiaceae
Blue China Fir kun-ing-HAM-i-a lan-see-o-LA-ta
- Conifer, evergreen tree, leaves more or less bluish because of a bloom over the dark green leaves.
- Sun, but best with some shade. Protect from hot, dry winds in summer and cold winds in winter.
- Hardy to USDA Zone (6)7 Often reported as more winter hardy than the species, but Jacobson (1996, p. 177) states that there is more than one clone in circulation so "assertions as to hardiness must be viewed with skepticism."
