“A growing source of excellence”

(Pond Cypress)

Taxodium ascendans Nutans (Pond Cypress) is a very distinctive and interesting tree.

Like the better known Swamp Cypress, this is a deciduous conifer which will grow well in wet ground. It is relatively slow growing with a conical form and will ultimately reach a height of approximately 10m.

The eye-catching feature is the bright green foliage that emerges in spring, growing vertically up from the branches and giving it a feathery appearance. In autumn it takes on the most glorious shades of orange and bronze.

This tree will grow best in a moist to wet area. Ideally it prefers slight acidity but will tolerate any moisture retentive soil. Best in full sun though can tolerate some light shade.

Available from Deepdale as a half stem tree
