A Bit More

The distinctive coniferous column of the Italian Cypress is as indicative of the Italian landscape as Roman statues and fountains. Happily, this elegant evergreen is easily translated into the American garden where it reigns as one of the top 20 trees in Boething Treeland Farms’ plant library. A towering architectural element to 40-60 foot, this narrow and upright blue-green column of foliage will ultimately achieve a 5-10 foot width at maturity. The leaves are flat scale-like, the 1” cones are attractively rounded. It is naturally drought tolerant and loves full sun and little water once established. It makes a fantastic screen and is comfortable in desert climates, near the coast, and everywhere in between. Count on these graciously formal trees to bring order to garden chaos.
