How To Plant Blue Italian Cypress
Blue Italian Cypress trees are fast growing and are rather low maintenance. They are adaptive to large varieties of soils and tolerate dry and arid climates.
How To Water
When it comes to watering your Blue Italian Cypress, we recommend checking your soil with your finger. Simply poke your finger into the ground near the tree, if your soil feels dry, then go ahead and treat your tree to a good long drink! Once the tree is established, they are incredibly drought tolerant.
How To Fertilize
Feed your Blue Italian Cypress in late winter or early spring, before the new growth begins to emerge. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.
How To Prune
Pruning is not required for the Blue Italian Cypress as its classic upright shape takes little to no effort! If you prefer a more formal look and feel, then you can consider shearing your Cypress.
How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 3 weeks to be delivered.
Your trees and plants are grown across the United States at various Bower & Branch Growers. Depending on your location, your plant orders may be shipped from various locations.
Please expect orders with multiple items to be delivered over a number of days as a result. Orders made up of numerous items or selections will not arrive at your home on the same day.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
