Bald Cypress

Regular price $45.00 Sale

Taxodium distichum

Because bald cypress shows high tolerance for very poor soils, it can be planted as a street tree or around newly constructed homes. This tree does not drop fruit, making it a good choice to plant near a patio, and the narrow crown makes it suitable for foundation plantings.        BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN TREE

Be sure to plant Bald Cypress  at least  20' from the house

Soft needle-like leaves give the Bald Cypress a fine texture. It is native to Southern wetlands and is adaptable to landscapes with wet or dry soil. Bald Cypress with its reddish barks grows best in FULL SUN.
