The Bald Cypress, Taxodium distichum, is a remarkable deciduous conifer known for its unique appearance and adaptability.

Native to the southeastern United States, this majestic tree features delicate, fern-like foliage that emerges light green in spring, transitions to a rich green in summer, and finally turns a stunning coppery bronze in autumn before shedding for winter.

Its buttressed trunk and distinctive pyramidal shape add architectural interest to landscapes, while its tolerance to wet conditions makes it ideal for planting near water features or in boggy soils. With its graceful beauty and resilience, the Bald Cypress stands as an iconic symbol of Southern charm and natural splendour.

Often confused with either Coast Redwood or Dawn Redwood however Swamp Cypress needs a good supply of moisture – or even a swamp!

Bald Cypress thrives in full sun to partial shade and moist to wet soils. Water regularly, especially during dry spells, and avoid planting in poorly drained soils. Prune as needed to maintain shape and remove any dead or damaged branches.

Supplied approx 60-80cm tall in a 2 litre pot.
