Bald cypress is a long lived, deciduous conifer in the same family as the Redwoods. This tree thrives down south, in swamps and bayous. It is known for having a flared trunk and knobby roots (“knees”) when grown close to water. Bald cypress can be used in a large rain garden, or as a specimen tree if there’s a moist area of the yard. With its needle-like foliage, and drooping branches it can be a very attractive addition to any landscape.
