TAXODIUM
YEW CYPRESS


Please click on logo to return to catalog



This genus has three species of which we grow two. The name comes from the similarity of the foliage to the genus Taxus. Both are deciduous and have very nice fall color and an extraordinary branching structure that looks fantastic in the winter.

var. 'NUTANS' The Pond Cypress is a tree that is smaller than T. distichum and has a spreading upright branch structure. The trunk is is also wider at the base. It is found in and near swamps and ponds and has drooping branches.

Distichum
Bald Cypress


Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association Plant Award

Large
Pyramidal
Zone 6
This is the well known Bald Cypress that grows in wet conditions. It develops the 'knees' or hollow upright growth structures, around the base of this tree when planted near water. These 'knees' are thought to either supply oxygen to the tree or to act as an anchor in the wet swampy soils. It has nice green foliage similar to Metasequoia but the leaves are alternate instead of opposite.

SECREST� This is a great new selection with a most unusual feature for a Taxodium. It has a spreading almost prostrate habit! This one is a hit already so order early. It was developed at Secrest Arboretun in Ohio.
