Hi ,

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

    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 image

    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.
