The Italian Cyrpess has a narrow columnar habit of growth. This evergreen forms tall, dark green columns 40-60 ft in height in the western US but are often much shorter. Trees are normally no than 3 ft wide. The scale-like leaves lend a very fine texture to any setting. Planted three feet apart, they make a dense screen. The Italian Cypress is often used for framing, as a strong accent around large buildings, or in the formal landscape but does not lend itself well to many home landscapes. It quickly grows much too tall for most residential landscapes, looking much like a green telephone pole. The Italian Cypress can reach a height of over 40-60 ft. It's cold hardy to zone 7.
