Product Details

Looking to add style, elegance and height to your property, but have limited space?  The Italian Cypress tree may just be a dream come true!

The Italian Cypress Tree grows in a very upright, narrow columnar fashion. Its shape is compact, making it perfect for tight, narrow spaces.  In fact, even though this evergreen has a mature height of up to 50 feet, the width is a mere 2 to 3 feet!

This tall, unique tree is sure to get noticed by passersby.  The blue-green color of the Italian Cypress foliage is highly sought after in landscape design.  No matter how you use this stunning tree, there is no doubt it will add value and beauty to your property.

Growing up to 3 feet per year, the Italian Cypress is certainly a fast growing tree.  They grow almost anywhere, require little water, adapt to most soils and are cold hardy.  Italian Cypress trees are also drought tolerant.  Full to partial sun helps them thrive.

The Italian Cypress is gaining popularity in newer home developments and high end neighborhoods giving your property the dramatic pizzazz it has been lacking. The Italian Cypress adds height to your property without taking up much room

How To Care for your new Italian Cypress Tree

Choose a sunny location with well drained soil for your Italian Cypress.

Water in well at the time of planting.  Be sure not to let your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established.  We recommend watering your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them.  This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting.  Once established Italian Cypresses are drought tolerant and will only need to be watered once or twice a month in summer.

There is no need to prune an Italian Cypress.  If you choose to prune for shape or to remove problem branches winter is the ideal time.

Early Spring is the best time to fertilize and add any soil amendments.



Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

6 new Italian cypresses!
All 6 are in the ground, mulched and ready for winter. Cannot wait for them the sink their roots down and begin to grow. The next 3 years I will treat them as my "babies". They arrived in great shape and I believe they will grow healthy and tall!

Very pleased
I received 20 of the 3-4' Italian cypress trees and I was very pleased to see they were exactly what I pictured. They are very green and healthy. There was a problem with the shipper (Fed Ex) in that they stacked them haphazardly and some of the boxes were bent or crushed. Thank goodness you pack them as good as you do, so none of the trees were damaged.

Hope they live and thrive!
These trees arrived very well-packed, quite moist, and in great shape. I'd never ordered trees by mail / internet before, and I was a bit nervous, but The Planting Tree person I spoke with was comfortable to consult with and the company sent excellent saplings.

We live in Baltimore, Maryland, and our soil has clay and doesn't drain as well as I'd like. I hope these Italian Cypress trees do well, but I'm not entirely optimistic, under the circumstances. However, if they fail, it will not be due to the quality of the trees or delivery by The Planting Tree.

anthony s on Jun 20, 2017
I've been looking for these trees locally at Homedepot/Lowes hard to find the right size, price & quality. I've ordered before from other online nurseries and was quite surprised how great the packaging was. I hear the same here from the reviews I've read. The price can't be beat plus no shipping or taxes. Can't wait to receive them.

I wanted trees that would give me privacy. I just lost a 25+ yr old Ash and can't stand my back yard with out the tree. These trees will grow quickly and are evergreens.

How do you take care of drying Italian Cypress ?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Watering deeply less often is much better than watering a little every day. Mulching can help to keep moisture in the soil longer.
How do they do in north Georgia clay?
Henry P on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As long as the soil drains well, yes, they will do fine in clay.
How do these handle winter? Idaho?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, unfortunately Idaho will be too cold for Italian Cypress. These evergreen don't tolerate cold winters. Sky Pencil Hollies don't get nearly as tall, but they offer the same look and are evergreen and will grow in your area.
Will they survive in Providence, RI? Thank you.
A shopper on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, no. Italian Cypresses grow best in warm climates, specifically zones 7-11. It looks like Providence is a zone 6.

Check out the Skypencil Holly for a similar look that will do great in your area (they don't get nearly as tall though). Here is the link:
