What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Bald Cypress
Botanical name: Taxodium distichumCommon name: bald cypressUSDA zones: 4-9Water requirement: Water regularly until establishedSun requirement: Full sun Mature size: 50-130’ tall x up to 50' wide.Growth rate: Grows quickly when young, slows with ageTolerances: Wind, standing water, drought (once established)Environmental benefits: Erosion control; wildlife nesting and source of food; water quality improvement
Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum, USDA zones 5 to 10; find your zone) is the king of flood-tolerant trees and can be found growing directly in standing water throughout Southeastern swamps, from North Carolina to extreme southeast Florida. They're also drought tolerant once established, so they're often used in a wide variety of commercial plantings — anywhere from retention ponds to parking lot medians. Cypresses are known for developing buttressed trunks and knobby roots that protrude from the soil, but they'll keep their roots below the soil as long as floods aren't frequent.Pond cypress (Taxodium ascendens, zones 5b to 9b) is similar to bald cypress, but its smaller size makes it ideal where space is a concern.

Bald Cypress, soggy soil, king of flood-tolerant zones 5-10. Will keep knees below soil as long as floods aren't frequent.

Poorly drained landscapes and wet soil can haunt home gardeners. Bald cypress (Taxodium distichum), native to southern U.S. swamps and traditionally harvested for lumber, can serve as the perfect ornamental solution, particularly those with too much of a wet thing. “They have fantastic soft and feathery foliage, reddish-brown peeling bark and turn a great russet brown color in the fall,” says David Migdal from The Garden Consultants in Highland Park, Ill. “They are dramatic when used in mass or as a single specimen. Highly adaptable, they tolerate both extremely moist conditions as well as drought once established.” Need I say more? Botanical name: Taxodium distichum Common name: bald cypress USDA zones: 4-9 Water requirement: Water regularly until established Sun requirement: Full sun Mature size: 50-130’ tall x up to 50' wide. Growth rate: Grows quickly when young, slows with age Tolerances: Wind, standing water, drought (once established) Environmental benefits: Erosion control; wildlife nesting and source of food; water quality improvement
