Watch the play of light and shadow across the wide canopy. This special weeping cultivar has a garden story to tell…and you’ll never get tired of hearing it.

Our plant experts have grown Cascade Falls Weeping Bald Cypress as a staked tree-form. Allow the pendulous weeping branches to drape as a ground cover, or prune them up into a uniform skirt at your desired height.

As temperatures drop, the green foliage turns an outstanding orange for a vivid autumn accent that can’t be overlooked. Plan for this showy fall display by placing fall-flowering plants like Aster at its base.

If you have the room, this is a gorgeous plant to repeat along the far side of a pond or water feature. Congregate a trio…varying the spacing between the plants for an evocative garden feature.

We highly recommend Nature Hills Root Booster during planting. Keep this incredible plant happy by adding this life-long formula that never “wears out”. Apply acidic soil fertilizers to keep the pH moderately low, following directions on the label.
