The Q&A Archives: Tiny Tower Italian Cypress growth range

Question: I have been told Tiny Tower was more of a western US plant, but it is listed for zones 7-9, I believe. I am in 7 in Georgia. Would it work here?

Answer: Cupressus sempervirens ?Monshelby? ?Tiny Tower? is a new dwarf version of an Italian cypress from Monrovia Nurseries that retains its small size indefinitely. It is a slow grower that reaches 8? in the first ten years. The dense, blue-green foliage and rigid columnar form is a good landscape accent and also ideal for containers and topiaries. Grow in full sun in zones 7-10. Once established, it is drought tolerant. It should grow well for you in your gardening zone. Enjoy!
