Plant Description: Italian Cypress has a very narrow upright growth habit reaching heights of forty to fifty feet tall with a width of only three to five feet. The short branches hold the bluish-gray scale like foliage closely to the center of the plant forming a dense column. Once established Italian Cypress is drought and heat tolerant but are susceptible to spider mites. This unique plant works great in a formal landscape.
Cupressus sempervirens ‘Monshel’ or Tiny Towers is a shorter variety only reaching a mature size of twelve feet in height.
Cupressus sempervirens ‘Glauca’ is a variety that has bluish foliage.
