Looking for a stunning tree that will thrive in any soil? Consider the Taxodium distichum, also known as Baldcypress, Bald Cypress, or Swamp Cypress. This deciduous conifer is native to the southeastern United States and can grow up to 80 feet tall. While it thrives in wet soils and shallow water, it is also able to tolerate dry sites in the landscape. The tree's roots even develop curious "knees" in standing water up to 60cm deep. The Taxodium distichum is characterized by fibrous bark and alternate leaves with a finer texture than the straight species. Needles point up and are twisted, and in the fall, the tree produces rust-colored foliage. With a growth rate of 2.9 ft./yr., it's faster growing than the straight species and makes for a very attractive tree. The plant prefers a range of soil types and can tolerate atmospheric pollution. Visit our website for more information on this stunning tree and how to grow it in your own space.
