Cupressus sempervirens (Cypress, Italian)

Cypress, Italian

Cupressus sempervirens

A species of cypress that is native to the Mediterranean which distinctively stands out with its very tall and narrow growth habit. It requires unique placement in any landscape, getting no more than a few feet wide yet up to 40 feet tall.

The erect branches do not branch far out from the main trunk, and have scale-like leaves produced off shoots of the branches. The dense, dark green leaves hold their color year round; in colder climates to the north the tree forms a narrow cone-shape. The seed cones are not readily visible when mixed in with the leaves.

Requires well drained soils, and appreciates regular watering and fertilization.
