Vertical Trees With Fast Growth Rate & Evergreen Foliage

The Italian Cypress tree (cypress Cupressus sempervirens) also known as the Tuscan Cypress takes on a narrow, columnar form and tidy, well-groomed appearance without any pruning. This makes it a unique low maintenance evergreen.  This cypress evergreen tree features exceptionally dense blue-green foliage with scale like leaves that lend a very fine texture to any landscape setting.

It is well suited to topiaries, large pots or containers, entryways or anywhere you desire to have vertical appeal. This tree is adaptable to many settings and will provide a plant that grows very tall in a short time and can handle hot dry weather. The Italian cypress plant can enhance curb appeal in your landscape.

At times the tall height of this tree can be challenging to fit within residential landscapes. The Italian Cypress tree is best suited for framing, as a strong accent around large buildings, or informal landscape. It is a great choice for a wind blocking tree and is long living!

The tree can grow up to 30 to 40 feet tall; the Italian Cypress growth rate is up to 1-2 feet per year. The dark green tree grows narrowly and maintains 3-5 feet wide. Never prune the height of your Italian Cypress tree until it reaches your desired height. Don’t fret, it establishes quickly and you will have a tall tree in no time! The fast growth rate is ideal if you are looking for tree height fast.

ITALIAN CYPRESS CARE

The Blue Italian Cypress grows and thrives in acidic, well-drained soil with full sun, and is deer resistant. The Mediterranean cypress can tolerate a wide range of soil types.

Newly planted cypress can benefit from adding a slow release fertilizer to the planted tree once a year. Although it is drought tolerant once established, be sure to water your fast growing tree thoroughly during the first few years to establish a strong root system.

The tree may lose its green color if it not being watered properly. The needles will turn brown. Italian cypress roots travel deep into the ground so choose your planting spot with care.

Make sure soil is well draining – this tree does not like wet soils and may be susceptible to root rot. To properly care for italian cypress, it is a good idea to pick a proper planting site and soil that retains moisture.

Planting Italian Cypress Trees

Plant Italian Cypress in the United States Department of Agriculture growing zones 7-10. This tall screen tree cannot withstand freezing temperatures for too long. It will turn the gray green leaves brown and if left can kill the tall narrow tree. You can also check out our Evergreen Tree Grow Guide for more information on planting evergreens.

This is a fire resistant tree and it is also resistant to pests and diseases like spider mites. Shake off excess dirt from root ball before planting to encourage new growth.
