Taxodium distichum

"Swamp Cypress"

Common Name

"Swamp Cypress"


The most suitable conifer for very wet conditions. A large tree, with fibrous reddish-brown bark. Leaves grass-green turning bronze-yellow in autumn. A strikingly beautiful tree, often planted close to lakes and ponds. When grown by water, large specimens produce peculiar 'knee-like' growths from the roots which project above ground. Native of wet places, rivers and swamps in the South United States.
