Quick Overview:

With its notable weeping form and bright green foliage, Cascade Falls Bald Cypress is prized in the nursery trade as a unique accent specimen tree.This is a deciduous conifer that sends out strictly weeping limbs which bear bright green spirally arranged needles. In the landscape, gardeners will stake it to desired height and then allow the developing branches to weep out onto the ground. If it has not been staked when it was first planted it will form a groundcover. During the winter months the limbs will still have interest as the bark exfoliates.

Description

Best grown in average, medium to wet, moisture-retentive soils in full sun. Prefers moist, acidic, sandy loams, but tolerates a wide range of soil conditions ranging from average moisture garden soils to wet soils. ‘Cascade Falls’ is typically grafted to Taxodium distichum understock at a desired height and the branches then weep downward from the point of the graft. If not grafted or otherwise supported, the foliage of this weeping cultivar would simply sprawl along the ground as a ground cover.
