Cody Feathers Bald cypress

September 24, 2011

Close up of foliage.

Taxodium distichum ‘Cody Feathers’

Also known as Wooster’s broom, this dwarfish form of the bald cypress grows into a beautiful small tree. I graft mine a few feet off the ground to bring the ferny foliage closer to the viewer. Being a bald cypress, it can be sited in a wetter than usual place and perform well. In the fall, the foliage turns an attractive orange then brown and then falls off. Other smaller forms of bald cypress to look for include: Tiny leaf, Hurley Park, Cave Hill, and Seacrest..
