The slender columns of the Mediterranean Cypress stick out into the sky like a rocket. In Tuscany, they border alleys, emphasize hill tops and characterize the landscape. In this country you can plant them into the garden, because from their home country these evergreen trees are used to a good portion of cold and snow. For successful growing they require well draining, uncompacted soil, protection against the sun in winter and at the same time sufficient soil moisture. Planted in pots the Mediterranean Cypress can also be used as an architectonical element around the house. As a pot plant they create an Italian flair on sunny terraces, line the path to the house or stylishly round off the garden pond. When planted in a pot, they are the first ones that can be brought ouside in spring and the last ones that need to be brought to the winter quarters, thus giving you a long season 'a la Italia'. In a greenhouse the Mediterranean Cypress will grow up to slim columns and make a good partner for large olive trees, fig trees and other Mediterranean classics that all require a cool temperature in the winter quarter.
