Cupressus or Cypress
There are many varieties to this family, some are suitable for hedging and can grow fairly fast and some that are a standalone feature. They form an upright column shape with flattened, aromatic foliage, they can have spherical female cones.
Where to Site Your Cupressus
They look very pretty in a mixed shrubbery garden, rock garden or as a low maintenance shrub or an impressive large standalone conifer. So many uses from this wonderful conifer family.
How to Grow and Look after your Cupressus
Cupressus like full sun and grow in moist very well drained soil.
Preferably out of a windy site, also on larger specimens it is worth staking them until they are established.
They do require pruning just keep them looking neat and tidy.
