This tall, vertical accent tree is often used in formal landscapes. It is propagated by cuttings rather than grown from seed to reproduce its desired qualities. The distinctive, narrow, dense columnar form reaches 20 to 60 feet high, spreading to just 8 feet wide. ‘Glauca’ has attractive, bluish green, juniperlike foliage. ‘Stricta’ is similar in form and size with dark green foliage.
Red spider mites can attack plants in summer and may even kill drought-stressed trees. Water deeply every three weeks to help avoid this problem, and treat mites when they appear. Native to the Mediterranean. Canopy coverage can range to up to 50 square feet.
