Hesperocyparis sempervirens var. Horizontalis Italian Cypress, also known as Mediterranean Cypress, is a narrow, strictly erect evergreen tree that is native to the eastern Mediterranean region. This cultivar is also known as Pencil Pine and is widely popular for its fragrant wood that repels moths, making it ideal for wardrobes and cabinet making. The plant has two growth habits- fastigiate and horizontal. The horizontal form is believed to predate human activity while the fastigiate form has a horticultural origin dating back to prehistoric times. The Cupressus sempervirens 'Stricta' variety is found in Southern Europe and western Asia and was used by the Ancient Greeks to carve statues of their gods. The essential oil distilled from the shoots is extensively used in perfumery, aromatherapy, and soap making. The leaves and cones are anthelmintic, antipyretic, antirheumatic, antiseptic, astringent, balsamic, and vasoconstrictive. The wood is very hard, durable, and fragrant, making it popular for building use. This cultivar grows to 30m by 5m and is hardy to zone 7. It prefers light, medium, and heavy soils and requires well-drained, dry or moist soil. It can tolerate drought and has a very tolerant hot and dry climate. It does not grow in the shade and requires a sunny position.
