Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Bald Cypress
Enjoy it. Fall is a perfect season not only to plant young trees, but also to enjoy the seasonal interest that bald cypress offers. The green feathery needles of the cypress transition to a warm, reddish brown in autumn before eventually dropping off in winter. Fibrous reddish silver bark, hidden by its foliage in summer, is revealed more prominently as the year finishes.Bald cypress is an ideal specimen or shade tree for spaces lacking square footage. While it reaches towering heights, its trunk diameter remains thin. Whether clustered in a grove or lining an extended driveway, the drama of its buttressed trunk, weightless foliage, and dominating height make for a dynamic and unforgettable planting.
