Cupressus sempervirens 'Glauca'

Italian Pencil Pine, Italian Cypress


An upright, columnar growing conifer, this Pencil pine is appreciated for its lovely tight habit, limited cone set and dense, green foliage with a glaucous bloom. Use as solitary plantings to identify doorways or path entry, or, as multiples to line driveways or place against feature walls. Prefers a full sun position but can adapt to semi-shade. Does best in a light, well drained, fertile soil. Keep mulched and water well during dry periods. Very hardy and will grow in all but the most severe of climatic zones in Australia.
