Tree/Shrub - Item 027 - Taxodium distichum "Bald Cypress"

 Retail Value:  $100

Long-lived and majestic, Taxodium distichum (Bald Cypress) is a deciduous coniferous tree of great beauty. It enjoys an upright, pyramidal form that enhances many landscapes. Unlike most cone-bearing trees, Bald Cypress loses its needles each winter and grows a new set in spring. Its delicate foliage sprays of soft, feathery, sage-green leaves, warm up to rich shades of orange, cinnamon and golden-brown in the fall, before dropping and revealing the red-brown to silver exfoliating bark. Small ovoid, purplish-green cones mature to brown. The russet-red fall color of its lacy needles, the interesting winter silhouette are some of its outstanding characteristics.
