The Backyard Conversation Starter Falling Waters Baldcypress

  • Fascinating Weeping Structure
  • Soft Featherlike Foliage
  • Tolerant of Poor Soil Conditions
  • Full Sun for Best Growth

Some of us don't have the room to install an entire water feature in our front yards. While disappointing, you don't have to give up the dream altogether. Plant a Falling Water Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum 'Falling Waters') and revel in its flowing foliage!

Like other weeping forms, this tree's branches stretch towards the ground in a race to see which touches grass first. Unlike other forms, its foliage is needle-like!

That's right! But don't worry, they aren't sharp. Running your hand through its luscious green botanical hair feels as soft as a feather!

As pretty as this deciduous tree is in the spring and summer, you'll be absolutely astounded at its beauty come fall. The leaves turn a gorgeous shade of copper before falling away to reveal the fascinating branch structure underneath.

Imagine the beauty of this tree covered in a layer of sparkling morning frost!

Use as the focal point of your front yard for a unique display that lasts all year. Should you happen to already have that water feature the rest of us are jealous of, Plant this at the edge to complete the aesthetic.

You can also plant at the edge of your backyard patios. They make great conversation starters!

To keep this weeping tree at its happiest, place it somewhere in full sun and well drained soil. However, it does alright in both dry conditions and even a bit of standing water. Acidic soil is best along with a mick layer of mulch around the base.

Fall in love with Falling Waters Baldcypress. Snatch yours up today before they're gone!
