Taxodium distichum

Common name: Bald Cypress

Native plant

Bald Cypress is one of only a few deciduous conifers growing in this part of the country, being native to southern Illinois. Taxodium is also the most water-tolerant of the plants we grow, able to take weeks or even months with its roots submerged. You must visit Heron Pond in southern Illinois to see the 80-foot tall virgin cypress. Even with its preference for moist sites, we have found that it is also suited well to mesic soils and curb sides. The brown-orange exfoliating bark, soft green foliage, and russet orange fall color mark this as an excellent landscape plant.
