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, but you can simply shear off the top when they’ve reached the height you want. These graceful trees do a beautiful job of defining your property’s edge, and they make an unmistakably regal statement when planted along both sides of a long driveway in neat rows. 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.
