Taxodium distichum
Bald Cypress

Taxodium distichum - Bald Cypress


The bright green fern-like leaves give the Bald Cypress its unique look. Its leaves turn a coppery bronze in the autumn, then drop in the winter. A spherical green female cone will ripen to a brown in autumn and males will produce perdent red cones in late winter. It has rapid to moderate growth of 50-70 feet in height and a spread of 20-30 feet, but can get up to 100 feet tall. Can tolerate extremely wet conditions, often seen growing next to rivers and lakes, Bald Cypress can also tolerate dry conditions. When growing in wet conditions the tree will develop "knees" at the base. Native to Texas from East Texas swamps to the Edwards Plateau region. Bald Cypress is similar to Oaks in that trees from drier regions are more adapted to dry soils while those from swampy regions are more adapted to soggy soils.
