Taxodium (Swamp Cypress)

Swamp Cypress are cypress-like trees and close to the Mammoth Tree or Redwoods from North America. They are very resistant and moderately growing trees with a conical habit and deciduous, light green, aromatic leaves, turning brownish red in fall before being shattered. Easy for any rather moist and humus rich soil in a sunny position.
Sow seeds autumn to spring, rather flat in any well drained, humus rich being slightly acid. Cultivate in pots preferably under frostfree conditions for at least two years, transplant stronger plants to the open garden in mid spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
