Cupressus sempervirens 'Pyramidalis' is an elegant, slender, vigorous, coniferous, narrowly columnar, evergreen tree with dense, thin, almost pencil-like habit, short sprays of aromatic, dark-green, scale-like leaves on erect branches, and rounded cones. Cupressus sempervirens 'Pyramidalis' is tolerant of moist soil types, but prefers well-drained sandy loams in full sun. It likes plenty of direct sun, but needs to be protected from harsh winds. Once established, it is tolerant of drought. Mediterranean plant, it thrives in coastal conditions. Tolerant of urban pollution. No serious pest or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Italian cypress 'Pyramidalis' is unknown to the wild, but has been grown in Italian classic gardens since Renaissance times. It’s an elegant, beautiful, architectural tree, stunning when planted in groups or rows. Excellent as a specimen or accent plant. Great-looking when planted in pairs in front the entrances. Good for hedges and screens and suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
