A strikingly upright cultivar of a southeast US native, the form is columnar --like Italian cypress (Cupressus sempervivum), reaching 8-15 ft, though easily kept lower -- and accented with glossy, evergreen leaves, to about 1" long, and small, orange-red berries in autumn. On mature plants, the upright branches can lean and develop upright branchlets so plants are easily shorn or tied to retain a tighter presence. More tolerant of moisture than Italian cypress. Lovers of heat and tolerant of drought once established, they are frost hardy to USDA zone 7 and are best in full sun to only lightly dappled shade. As the name suggests, the fruit should not be eaten.
