Mediterranean Cypress Pencil Pine

Cupressus sempervirensvar stricta

(This plant is NOT on the Australian Noxious Weed List)

An evergreen, columnar tree native to the Mediterranean countries of Libya, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Malta, Jordan and Iran. Although it is known as the Italian/Tuscan Cypress, it is not native to Italy.

A very long lived tree known to live 1000 years, it produces a very durable, scented wood that has been used for the doors of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, distillery vats before the advent of stainless steel, and is the most common tree grown in Muslim cemeteries. Pieces of its branches were carried in Roman funerals and distinguished persons were buried with branches of the tree.

The Mediterranean Cypress is a medium tree growing to 35 metres (115ft) tall with a conical shape. The dark green foliage grows in dense sprays, the leaves being scale-like 2-5mm long. The seed cones are ovoid to oblong 25-40mm long and divided into 14 scales turning brown when mature at 24 months old.

This tree prefers well-drained soil in a Mediterranean climate (wet winter, dry summer) and will tolerate drought and some frost.

Offered is a packet of 40 seeds and Grownotes to assist you in propagation.

All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
