If you've ever run your hands across a Baldcypress, you know that while their foliage looks sharp and prickly, it's actually quite soft. Almost feather-like!
Smaller yards can now benefit from trees like Lindsey's Skyward™ Bald Cypress or Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum 'Skyward') making tall waves in the landscape.
Baldcypress are interesting and unique trees, looking like evergreens but they lose their foliage in the winter like other deciduous trees. Known as deciduous conifers, these have soft, rich-green foliage that looks like fine, almost feathery needles that turn coppery tones come fall.
Once the foliage drops you'll get to enjoy the look that the textured bronzy bark adds to the winter landscape. Delicate branches add elegance and character.
Try using this specimen as a privacy screen, or you can plant two, one on either side of your garden path or front walkway. The dense narrow spire looks amazing in rows and loose hedges while the beautifully tiered upward-facing branches work as an impressive specimen planting.
Skinny growth habit means it's perfect for cottage gardens and places where there simply isn't enough room for a full-size tree. You can also plant it as an accent in your perennial garden bed to add a pop of texture.
Not taking up too much space in the landscape nor having an aggressive root system, Lindsey's Skyward™ plays well with other plants and won't ruin driveways or sidewalks. Also, the fibrous root system has no surface roots or knees like the larger cousins.
Plant in full sun where it can take in the rays all day long. Don't worry though, if all you have is part shade, that will do just fine. It's happiest in well-drained soil but it isn't too picky if it gets a little wet here and there. It's also quite drought tolerant once established.
Lindsey's Skyward™ Baldcypress may seem like a prickly old tree on the outside but once you get to know it you'll see it's as soft as a teddy bear. Order one of your own to complete your garden projects today!
