Cupressus Sempervirens Totem (Totem Cypress, Totem Pole)
Product Code: 2308
A smaller and more delicate version of the Italian Cypress that creates a modern feel.
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 to its delicate nature and preference to warm and dry climates, we would not recommend this tree be used in Scotland or Northern Ireland. Totem Cypress look great along paths 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. 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. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
