The Q&A Archives: Tiny Tower Italian Cypress not staying dense and compact but becoming bushy


Answer: Emilio,

Based on your description it is difficult to be sure about what is happening to the plant. I suspect you are seeing normal growth. These plants are sheared periodically to maintain density and shape. They will stay pretty compact in growth anyway but after they grow a few inches try shearing them lightly.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
