Cupressus Sempervirens Totem (Totem Cypress, Totem Pole)
A thinner, smaller and more delicate version of the Italian Cypress, its pole-shape projects a stylish modern serenity across your garden.
The Totem Cypress does not grow as tall or as fast as the “Pyramidalis” Italian Cypress. It also has a brighter green (although this can dull if planted in areas of Northern England). Due its delicate nature and preference to warm and dry climates, we would not recommend this tree be used in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. The size of conifers can vary from 100cm shrubs to 60m tall trees. In fact even a slow-growing miniature conifer may grow up to 3m (10ft) tall at maturity.
