Average Size at MaturityGrows 25 ft. tall, 8 ft. wide in natural form.

Design IdeasA cold hardy alternative to Italian cypress that adds Mediterranean character to landscapes. Outstanding against warm colored stucco walls or in conjunction with rectangular Moroccan style swimming pools. Exploit the columnar form in formal garden design by using as a matched pair to flank doorway, gate, art or a fountain. Use in the English style to create a staccato background of deep green colonnade at the back of a mixed border. Tall enough to provide screening from neighboring second story windows when more tightly spaced.
