Make your landscape a head-turner with this beautiful conifer that transforms into copper red during Fall!
Bald Cypress has a foliage composed of soft, needle-like, green leaves that changes from green to yellowish green during Summer, then copper red or orange brown before falling down in Fall. It loses all its leaves during the Fall, thus making it look bald. This beautiful conifer blooms both male and female flowers during April. It also produces a cone-shaped fruit that carries triangular seed that can be eaten by wild animals. It grows best in full sun to partial shade, and in moist and well-drained soils. It also has tolerance in dry soil and air pollution. It can also resist flooding. The oldest living Bald Cypress is at least 2,624 years old. The maximum height it can reach is around 70 feet high, with a width of 25 feet. It grows fast and is relatively low maintenance. It is also known as swamp cypress, gulf cypress, red cypress and tidewater red cypress.
