Taxodium - Bald Cypresses

The three species of Bald Cypress (T. ascendens, T. distichum, T. mucronatum) are native to the southern part of North America. They are semi-evergreen to evergreen in the South and deciduous in the North. Bald Cypress can grow to 150’ tall, with soft, yellow-green needles, .25” to .75” long, but cultivars can grow to varying heights. One inch round seed cones begin as purplish-green, maturing to brown. They can grow in swamps and wet bottomlands where they develops “knees” to buttress the trees with additional stability in the water, but they can also adapt to drier conditions. Bald Cypress can grow in a variety of soils with average moisture or standing water. They are hardy to USDA zones 6 to 9 or 10.
