Why We Love Italian Cypress

The Italian Cypress is celebrated for its tall, elegant form, bringing a touch of Mediterranean grace to any landscape. Ideal for creating privacy screens, lining pathways, or as majestic standalone specimens, these trees offer both beauty and versatility. Their narrow growth habit makes them perfect for those with limited space, yet wishing for a dramatic effect.

Top Tree to Increase Property Value

Adding Italian Cypress to your landscape can significantly enhance your property's appeal and value. Its sophisticated appearance and low maintenance make it a desirable addition for homeowners and potential buyers alike, providing a lush, evergreen backdrop that enriches the overall aesthetic of your home.

Full Planting & Care Instructions

Planting & Care

  • Location & Sunlight: Choose a spot with full sun to partial shade. Although adaptable, Italian Cypress thrives in well-drained soil.
  • Watering: Water regularly after planting until established. Mature trees are drought-tolerant but benefit from occasional watering during dry spells.
  • Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced fertilizer in early spring to support vigorous growth.
  • Pruning: Pruning is rarely necessary but can be done to maintain shape or height.

Unique Evergreens to Frame Entryways

Evergreens serve as the backbone of a well-designed garden, offering constant visual appeal year-round. The Italian Cypress, with its elegant, tall, and slender form, is a popular choice for framing entryways. Here are a few other evergreens that can complement the Italian Cypress:

  • Arborvitae (Thuja orientalis): With thick foliage and varying heights, Arborvitae provide privacy and serve as a lush backdrop to your entrance.
  • Juniper: Offering texture and color variety, Junipers like the Blue Point Juniper and Juniper 'Parsonii' can introduce a soft blue-green hue to the landscape, enhancing your entryway's appeal.

Incorporating these evergreens with Italian Cypress can enhance your home's entrance, creating an inviting atmosphere for guests.
