Can anyone identify this conifer please. Trying to take cuttings as it's browned off but looks pretty enough to warrant the effort.
It looks to me like the variegated Leylandii × Cupressocyparis leylandii 'Harlequin'variegated Leyland cypress.
Not the easiest thing to strike cuttings from, but I have known people to be successful.
This may help
It's half dead. Not the best material for cuttings
Ours is not to reason why ...
soz but it still geez mi the dry boke.
I'm with Hosta.
My views on most variegated plants (hostas and ivies excepted) are well documented ... however, I'm well aware that there are others with different opinions

I like variegated plants if they add something to the non variegated form.
Who doesn't love variegated holly? but variegated ceanothus and pyracantha and the like????? Not for me.
Nutcutley Its half dead which is why I want to take cuttings and then dig that up.
Dove thanks for the info.
I've no idea what the rest of the comments mean.
Nothing to lose, but a strong healthy growing plant is necessary for cuttings
The growth is actually healthy at the top it must have just been cut back too far lower down, so I'll give it a shot thanks, despite the views on what is allowed to be variegated and what is not from above
