Blue Cypress-Need clarification

Hello Henrietta:

Cupressus arizonica and Callitris intratropica are both in the same
family (Cupressaceae), so they are indeed related, even if distantly.
What is interesting is that they each come from points in the globe
which are very far apart: SW USA and Australia.

Callitris is not a cypress, however, although it is bluish.

Hope this helps.
