Italian Cypress and Junipers straighten up?

Hi there everyone. I planted some 6 ft. tall Italian Cypress and 5 ft. tall Blue Point Junipers, from 15 gallon cans over the last few months. Try as I might, once they settle in the ground after planting , most seem to lean slightly one way or another. My staking attempts have not panned out , then the single stake tends to lean as well. Will these straighten out once they put on new growth? Or do I have to get a strong double stake system going? (Its hard to get the big stakes in deep enough)

I have never seen a crooked Italian cypress growing in the neighborhood, and I can't imagine everyone started with smaller plants.

Thanks for your feedback.
