Tree of the Week

Bald CypressBald Cypress

Taxodium distichum--Common Bald Cypress 

Hardiness Zones: 4 to 11 
Height: 70 ft
Spread: 25 ft
Form: pyramidal 
Type: deciduous tree 
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches 

Comments: Common Bald Cypress looks like an evergreen but is actually deciduous, so drops its leaves in the fall with a lovely color change. Its fine texture adds dimension to the winter landscape, and summer's light green color complements many of the darker-colored trees.

The growth habit is narrow while young but becomes broader as the plant ages. As it grows, it can be used to provide a lovely filtered shade, with its bottom limbs removed to show off its fibrous, red-brown bark. Common Bald Cypress prefers full sun when young and can be used near water. 

Beautiful fall foliage color. Thanks to plantfacts.osu.edu
