Taxodium distichum

Bald Cypress

Ordering plants has concluded for the season. The selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2024 plant catalog will be available later this winter

A truly unique species that is underutilized in our area. As a wetland specialist, it can tolerate heavy, poorly drained soils, and can even live in standing water, however it is also just fine on drier sites and even does well in urban settings. One of the few deciduous conifers, needles turn russet-red before dropping in fall. Prefers acidic soil conditions.
