An essental plant for any classical, Mediterranean-themed landscape, the Italian cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) bears small rounded cones that are aromatic when crushed. Grow this 40- to 60-foot tall tree in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 7 through 9, 10 in dry-summer locations.

Glauca

Also called the blue Italian cypress, 'Glauca' develops a column-like shape maturing to 50 to 60 feet tall and 5 to 10 feet wide. Its short, wispy foliage is blue-green .

Stricta

Sometimes labeled as 'Fastigiata' and commonly called the columnar Italian cypress, 'Stricta' bears deeper olive-green foliage on fused and flattened branches. It matures to 60 feet tall and 5 to 10 feet wide.

Swain's Gold

'Swain's Gold' is slower growing than other varieties, but sets itself apart ornamentally with its gold-tipped yellow-green foliage. This tree has a narrowly pointed shape and growing tip, reaching a maximum height of 20 to 30 feet with a base width of 3 to 4 feet.

Tiny Tower

If you are short on vertical or horizontal space, consider the densely growing selection 'Tiny Tower.' Even slower growing than 'Swain's Gold,' it reaches a height of 10 to 12 feet after 20 years of age, with a spread of 3 feet. Its needles display a deep bluish-green hue.

Horizontalis

Perhaps not a legitimate variety name, 'Horizontalis' is loosely assigned to more broadly-branching wild forms of the species, or seed-grown trees that came from narrow-shaped parents trees like 'Stricta' or 'Glauca.' The name "horizontalis" may be a remnant name once assigned to some Italian cypresses that taxonomists once believed to be a natural form variant.
