Cupressus sempervirens
Cypress Cy"press (s?"pr?s), n.; pl. {Cypresses} (-?z). [OE. cipres, cipresse, OF. cipres, F. cypr?s, L. cupressus, cyparissus (cf. the usual Lat. form cupressus), fr. Gr. ????, perh. of Semitic origin; cf. Heb. g?pher, Gen. vi. 14.] (Bot) A coniferous tree of the genus {Cupressus}. The species are mostly evergreen, and have wood remarkable for its durability. [1913 Webster]

Note: Among the trees called cypress are the common Oriental cypress, {Cupressus sempervirens}, the evergreen American cypress, {Cupressus thyoides} (now called {Chamaecyparis sphaeroidea}), and the deciduous American cypress, {Taxodium distichum}. As having anciently been used at funerals, and to adorn tombs, the Oriental species is an emblem of mourning and sadness. [1913 Webster]

{Cypress vine} (Bot.), a climbing plant with red or white flowers ({Ipot[oe]a Quamoclit}, formerly {Quamoclit vulgaris}). [1913 Webster]
