Towering Conifer in Shades of Blue-Green

Bring a taste of Mediterranean elegance to any landscape with the addition of the Blue Italian Cypress. This regal evergreen grows in a tall, columnar form, reaching heights up to 80’ tall! The narrowness of this tree means it fits perfectly in tighter spaces while still allowing it to stand out wherever it's planted.

Boasting a vivid blue-green hue year round, the Blue Italian Cypress provides a fast-growing focal point. The lush foliage is feathered and stays vibrant with very little maintenance. Yards of all sizes and styles will benefit from the distinct and classic beauty it offers. 

Its dense branches make the Blue Italian Cypress ideal for creating natural privacy. Plant a grouping to form a screen in your backyard, alongside a patio or pool, adjacent to a driveway or as a border. This striking tree is heat and drought tolerant, thriving in full sun.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Blue Italian Cypress Trees are heat and drought tolerant, so choose a location with full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) in well-drained soil.

Dig a hole that is just as deep but twice as wide as the root ball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole to check the depth. If the soil of the root ball is below the level of the soil of the surrounding ground, pick up the tree and add more soil to the hole. Fill in the hole with the same native soil you removed, then water the tree by counting to 20 or by giving it five full watering cans full of water.

2. Watering: Irrigate your newly-planted tree twice a week for the first month, once a week for the next two months, and every two weeks after the first three months. Water your Blue Italian Cypress if you have warm, dry, and windy weather during the winter in your area.

3. Fertilizing: This tree grows equally well in clay, loam, or sandy soils and does not need routine fertilizing.

4. Pruning: You should only need to do minimal pruning on this tree. Prune your tree in late winter when it is dormant. You can remove any dead or damaged branches, as this will help the tree's health and future growth.
