Italian Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens 'Glauca')
Italian Cypress, botanical name Cupressus sempervirens 'Glauca', brings a stately, formal look to any landscape. Native to southern Europe and Western Asia, Italian Cypress trees are an excellent choice for planting in tight areas. Featuring a narrow, columnar form, these evergreen trees are commonly seen planted in rows, lined up along driveways on properties throughout the Southwest, especially in coastal areas. The blue green foliage adds a classic Mediterranean look to any landscape style. At Moon Valley Nurseries, we feature Italian Cypress tree strains that provide a stronger foliage color versus similar offerings from other growers.
The Italian Cypress is more than just an attractive, space-saving tree. Does your property need more privacy? A fast grower and a great choice for mass planting, many homeowners living in tract housing may want to plant tall and wide Italian Cypress trees for use as a privacy hedge. Does too much wind bother you? Homeowners living in high wind areas will appreciate the windbreak features of these magnificent trees, too.
Drought tolerant as well as heat tolerant, once established, Italian Cypress trees will thrive in full sun environments with low to moderate water requirements once established. These conifer trees are also cold hardy. Homeowners can expect the lush dark blue green foliage to stay healthy and vibrant all year long. Once the holiday season arrives, feel free to add festive lighting!
Elegant and classy, the strikingly beautiful look of this tall and narrow conifer is sure to be a focal point in your landscape, whether planted separately or in small clusters. Moon Valley Nurseries has a large inventory of professionally nurtured Italian Cypress trees ready to be planted into any type of landscape.
