Italian Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens)
Tree, evergreen conifer
Origin : Central and East Mediterranean
Environment : forests, from sea level up to 1000 m.
Climate : warm, with dry summers and mild winters
A “trademark” of Tuscany landscape, the Italian Cypress is frost-intolerant. Cyparissus was a mythical boy hunter whose best friend was a deer. One day he killed his friend by mistake and prayed Apollo to let his tears forever fall, so the pitiful god turned him into this tree and his tears into resin. Since then, the Italian Cypress evokes a feeling of sadness.
