About This Plant

Sun; evergreen. The classical Italian cypress grows like an exclamation point in the landscape. It’s useful as a specimen or along driveways; it can also be used to soften hard angles. It can tolerate hot, dry summers. To prevent phytophthora root rot, avoid excessive soil moisture, especially in wet years; avoid piling mulch and soil in direct contact with the trunk.

Maintenance

Benefits from soil amendment, especially in heavy clay soils. Little pruning other than occasional removal of an errant branch.
