Taxodium (Bald Cypress)
Members of the genus Taxodium, known as a Pond or Bald Cypress, are deciduous conifers that thrive in very wet places, including swamps. Finely textured needles change from green to a rich russet color before dropping in fall, exposing the striking bark and round leathery cones for added winter interest. The cultivars we offer, chosen for appealing color, growth rate and form, are tough plants that work in virtually any type of soil, except alkaline. Although denizens of the swamp, these selections also grow well in areas that aren’t as soggy and perform as beautiful ornamental landscape features if given adequate moisture.
