This stately conifer has an impressive history, regarded in many regions of the Mediterranean as a sacred icon. The Italian Cypress proudly shows off its tall columnar stature, coming to a shapely point at the top. They can grow up to 40 feet tall and between 4 – 6 feet wide, but you can simply shear off the top when they’ve reached the height you want. The Italian Cypress can easily grow 3 feet per year. The dense blue-green leaves are not only aromatic, but ideal for sculpting into ornamental décor for a deck or patio. Don’t hesitate to put them in a pot if you’ve got little room. This hardy evergreen requires very low maintenance, and enjoys full sun or partial shade. Italian Cypress is drought resistant, and thrives in most any type of soil. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10.

First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
