In the Garden
IIt is a spectacular tree if you have the space in your garden, and a good, moist soil to keep it happy. Also known as the Swamp Cypress and Bald Cyprus, this is a deciduous tree that is naturally found in the swampy areas of the South Eastern United States. It is a large tree growing from 25-40m in ideal conditions and it is well suited to damp as well as dry soil environments assuming it is well watered during dry spells.
If you have poorly drained soils, this tree will grow where others can’t. Tough and easy to grow in Australian conditions, all it needs to be at its best is adequate water.
