Cupressus Sempervirens, the Italian Cypress

Sempervirens is the Latin word for evergreen.

This cypress form is a very thin, with dark silvery green foliage, elegant-looking tree that is perfect for adding an Italian feel to any planting scheme.

It’s useful for adding height to the back of the border and makes an attractive evergreen addition to shrub beds and formal plantings

Soil: all soils, but avoid waterlogged areas; very dry soils will need extra watering
