Cupressus sempervirens ‘Pyramidalis’, the Italian Cypress is a narrow almost pencil-like coniferous tree with dark green foliage and prickly brown cones. Very architectural. It is tolerant of poor soils and grows to its full potential in a sunny spot.
It will grow quite happily in a container as long as it has regular watering. Clip regularly to maintain a compact, neat appearance.
- Eventual Size:Up to 4 metres, but can be pruned.
- Position:Full sun, sheltered.
- Habit:Slow growing, architectural shape, immediately reminiscent of Italy.
