How to Grow Cupressus sempervirens Plants in your Garden
Gardener's HQ Guide to Growing Italian Cypress
The Cupressus sempervirens plant is an ornamental Cypress tree native to the Mediterranean. This evergreen can reach about 115 feet in height (35 m), but is usually about two thirds of this and is thus classified as a medium sized conifer.
It has dark green foliage that is carried in sprays. It carries ovoid seed cones that reach about 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) in length. The male cones are much smaller 1/5th of an inch (5 mm).
