Cupressus Sempervirens Pyramidalis (Italian Cypress, Mediterranean Cypress, Green Pencil)
Cultivated for its beauty, the Italian Cypress has been depicted in scenes by great painters and poets. Its tall, slim shape is elegant and sophisticated.
As its name suggests, the Italian Cypress is native to Central Europe – meaning it prefers warm, dry climates and does not require a large amount of watering. Their upright sprays of rich green foliage will give your garden a sense of modern luxury. These bold straight lines work well along pathways and driveways, or when combined with other ‘geometrically shaped’ garden features such as square patios and circular fountains.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements.
