Cupressus sempervirens, Italien cypress, Cemara kipas	Common name(s):Cupressus sempervirens, Italien cypress, Cemara kipas
Funereal cypress
Italian cypress
Mediterranean cypress
This species, a familiar tree in Italy, France and Spain, was introduced to these countries from the eastern Mediterranean. It has fine dark grayish green foliage with very tiny scale leaves in slightly flattened sprays, and large, slightly elongated, pale brown cones. In its growth habit the Mediterranean cypress exhibits a curious phenomenon: the form usually cultivated, known as Stricta, is narrowly columnar, but a proportion of its seedlings grow into trees with side branches at a wide angle to the trunk; this form is often known as Horizontalis.
