We have planted 2 tiny towers twice and they have died. Planted in planters by tree service with dirt they had been growing in. Facing west/in full sun. We are in zone 9. Don't know what to do. Need tall slim plants

What are Tiny towers? Italian Cypress?
What time of year were they planted? How often did you water them after they were planted? What kind of soil, drainage?

I have no idea what tiny towers are either. Shrug!
There is a Cupressus sempervirens 'Monshel' Plant Patent #12,933 for a plant called Tiny Tower Italian Cypress; is that what you had planted? Italian Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens Tiny Tower®)

Sky Pencil Holly aka Ilex crenata 'Sky Pencil' are tall and slim. The Sky Pencils does not come to a point bt may work for you.
