The Q&A Archives: ITALIAN CYPRESS, CARING FOR IN COLORADO
Will Italian Cypress survive in the more easterly/arid side of Denver, Colorado? Will they survive the winters here, and should I take special precautions? Will their root system damage patios?
Is there any special or general instructions for planting these in Colorado?
Answer: Italian cypress is rated for USDA cold zones 7-10, and I believe you are in either a 4 or 5, so your winters would be too cold. Plants can sometimes survive one zone difference, but 2 oe 3 would be pressing it.
