The Bald Cypress tree is also known as Taxodium distichum and is a native to the southeastern United States. It is a deciduous conifer that is mainly found in the wetlands.

It is a truly majestic tree that stands tall and looks magnificent in emerald green color.

It can be planted on the roadside or even in your home garden to make it look spectacular. Bald Cypress is prized for ornamental reasons and timber, which is widely used for wood carvings and decorative panels.

The tree thrives well in dry areas and cities as well. They prefer acidic soil and can attain a height of about 60- 90 feet on maturity. The shape of the tree ranges from pyramidal to oval and even columnar. The leaves are long and needle-shaped. The Bald Cypress is quite adaptable as it can well in both submerged conditions and well-drained soil. It develops knees in wet and swampy areas. The tree blooms from April to May and loses the leaves in the autumn season.

It is a very versatile tree and can be planted as a garden specimen or in front of the house outside the main entrance. They look equally good on the roadside next to your home. You can plant them through seeds, but it is a little tricky for beginners, so it is advisable to buy a bald cypress plant from a nursery and plant it in your home garden directly. The nursery plants are healthy- maintained to choose the one that you like and bring it home.

If you take care of your plant, then it can last for years to come, and you will get compliments from everyone who sets an eye on the spectacular tree standing proudly in the middle of your home garden. Another cypress similar to the Bald Cypress is the Leyland Cypress or the Eastern Red Cedar.
