Taxodium distichum Cascade Falls
Taxodium distichum 'Cascade Falls' otherwise known as the Weeping Bald Cypress or Swamp Cypress is a compact, weeping tree whose branches hang outwards and then weep towards the ground.
Flat, dark green, needle-like leaves turn an attractive rusty-brown colour before falling in autumn.
'Cascade Falls' will require staking to the desired height so that the branches can weep, as if left unsupported, they would sprawl along the ground as ground cover.
How to grow
This unique plant loves wet situations, so would be ideal planted near a pond, stream or in a boggy area in the garden.
