Taxodium distichum Bald Cypress Seeds

Taxodium distichum 

Bald Cypress

This conifer is common in the Everglades and known throughout the Southeast. Small, soft, needle-like leaves are radiant green and are accented by rugged aged looking bark. It is called bald because other members of this genus do not loose the leaves, but this one does. Makes a great focal point to any landscape. The slender pyramidal habit make it perfect as a specimen tree, bonsai or even grown as a container plant. In the fall the leaves provide a stunning show of cinnamon red that will be sure to please.
