Taxodium distichum 'Cascade Falls' / Cascade Falls bald cypress
Selection originating in New Zealand at Cedar Lodge Nursery. Introduced to US by Larry Stanley of Stanley and Sons Nursery of Boring Oregon, USA.
A weeping form of bald cypress. Leaves bright green on pendulous branches. Tree must be staked for height. Will make ground cover. (Stanley and Sons)
Seems to have marginal hardiness in Zone 5. Protected site suggested.
This is a completely weeping form or ground cover that must be staked to achieve height. Other alternatives would be to train this plant to grow up an arbor or Pergola, for example.
