Bald Cypress Tree

Bald Cypress Tree: Taxodium distichum, or the bald cypress tree, is a North American native evergreen tree species. Before cultivation, it occurred naturally across most of the temperate USDA growing zones.

Early colonials found this tree in many areas, from the marshlands and swamps of the eastern shore of Maryland to the lower Mississippi River region. They cultivated this tree when they found its wood to be rot-resistant and sturdy for building barrels, homes, and even railroad ties.

Today, growers across the United States love the bald cypress tree for its adaptability, year-round greenery, easy care, and lovely shape. TN Nursery recommends this tree for gardeners who need something to plant in constantly wet, poorly-draining soil.

Bald Cypress Tree Grows in Marshes

The bald cypress tree loves soil with a heavy moisture content and abundant organic matter. In fact, this tree even thrives in marshes and swamps! When you plant your bald cypress, select a full-sun location.

It makes a lovely species to plant in these locations:

  • Near a creek or stream.
  • On the banks of a pond.
  • In a slow-draining spot in the yard.
  • As a feature in a water garden.

Bald Cypress Tree is an Evergreen Beauty

The bald cypress tree grows to a mature height between fifty and seventy feet. If in water, the species develops knobby-looking root growths, or knees, that appear just above the water's surface. This species grows to a pyramid or triangle shape with a slightly rounded top. Mature branches have a subtle but attractive drooping form.

The bark presents as a dark reddish-brown with thin, peeling scales. The bald cypress tree bears small, feathery-looking, linear leaves almost an inch long. Tiny, pale lavender flowers bloom in the middle of spring; however, they sometimes go unnoticed to the fullness of the evergreen branches.
