Looking good! (Taxodium distichum (Swamp cypress))

The Swamp Cypress (Taxodium distichum) is an unusual conifer in that it is deciduous. Looks good as the leaves change colour, especially with the green of the Wisteria shining through.

It's a cracking tree Terra - the only drawback is that it sucks all the moisture up.

It's an autumn beauty alright .. we have very dry patches under some of our trees it's difficult to know what to grow under them it's all trial and error I'm afraid :o(

Thanks all! It is rather spectacular!

Amy - I just need to remember to water after a few days without rain. I'm pretty good at prepping the planting holes now too.

I guess its name, Swamp Cypress, tells us it is going to be very thirsty. Lol. It looks a very healthy tree. Well done on catering to its needs.
