Cupressus sempervirens

Ornamental and Medicinal Possibly the most emblematic tree of the Mediterranean, the cypress is a resinous species easily recognized by its longiline bearing. It is likely that it was introduced by the Romans two thousand years ago, which used it to signal the places of rest, such as inns and lodgings, which existed along its road network. In addition to being very ornamental it is also very fire resistant and its enclosed branches are shelter for many birds. Its essential oil still has medicinal properties. It adapts to different types of soil and does not require watering. It prefers places exposed to the sun. Essential in dry or Mediterranean gardens.
