Our Italian Cypress Agrimed Spirals are topiary specimens, shaped over time as a topiary spirals, adding strong vertical interest to the garden. Italian Cypress (Latin Name Cupressus Sempervirens) is an upright, fastigiate evergreen cypress perfect for lining walkways and bringing structural interest to the garden. Evergreen cypress trees are native to lands around the Mediterranean and into the Middle East. This variety Agrimed was specifically bred to withstand the fungal disease cypress canker that affects Italian cypress trees.
Our Cupressus Sempervirens Agrimed Spirals are canker resistant and shaped into topiary curls. Their naturally rich dark green foliage is scale-like and borne in particularly dense sprays. The evergreen foliage lasts all year with new growth appearing in spring that’s slightly lighter than mature foliage. If left unclipped Agrimed will produce small oblong cones. This topiary spiral is a simple way to bring height and interest to flat gardens throughout the year. To keep the spiral shape, it needs a twice-yearly clip.

It naturally grows wider at the base in a fastigiated pencil form, but clipping in spring and autumn will keep its short spiral shape.
