HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR THE BALD CYPRESS
If you’re in search of a distinctive, majestic tree that is deeply rooted in American history, the bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) could be the perfect addition to your landscape. Renowned for its unique beauty and resilience, the bald cypress tree is a true spectacle in any setting. It can grow impressively large, reaching heights of up to 70 feet and spreading as wide as 40 feet.
The bald cypress is celebrated for its longevity and adaptability, thriving for centuries when given the right care. It is particularly famous for its flared “knees” – knobby growths that emerge from the roots. These trees are an iconic sight in southern swamps, but they can flourish in a variety of soil types, including drier uplands.
This remarkable tree features a conical shape with feather-like, soft, green foliage that turns a stunning rusty orange in fall, before shedding its leaves for the winter.
When planting a bald cypress, it’s essential to consider its care requirements. Initially, the tree needs adequate water to establish a robust root system. While it is known for tolerating wet conditions, ensuring good drainage is key to its growth.
Pruning is less of a concern with bald cypress compared to other trees. However, it’s advisable to remove any dead or damaged branches and to shape the tree lightly during its early years.
The bald cypress is not just a tree; it’s a living piece of history. Adding one to your landscape is a way to connect with the natural heritage of America.
