Cupressus sempervirens 'Mediterranean' cypress
Common name: Italian Cypress, Tuscan Cypress, Common Cypress
Have you ever considered bringing a tree inside your home? Cypress trees are conifers that can make lovely houseplants if you give them the care they need. They want lots of light and to stay relatively moist, and will grow into the space that you give them so keeping them in smaller containers limits their size. Consider a cypress as a patio, entryway, or sunroom plant - somewhere they'll get plenty of the nutrients they need! Mediterranean cypress is a classic variety with thick and sturdy upward growing green leaves that will make you feel like you brought part of the forest into your home.
Light: Bright Filtered - Bright
Pet Friendly: No
Care: The time to prune your cypress is late winter going into spring as the tree begins to move out of it's dormant season. This is when it will be most resilient. Always use sharp and disinfected pruning shears to minimize damage to the plant!
