The Italian Cypress is a narrowly columnar, evergreen conifer with dense, dark-green foliage. The narrow exclamation mark silhouette is as familiar punctuating the Tuscan countryside as it is framing views in a more formal garden setting. So strong is this association that few other plants lend such an air of the Mediterranean to their surroundings. Native to hot, arid regions, Cupressus sempervirens is happiest in a sunny dry spot in temperate gardens. It has been historically grown for its durable, scented timber, the doors of St Peter's basilica in Vatican City being perhaps one of its more high-profile uses.
