Taxodium distichum 'McLaren Falls' (Swamp Cypress) Details

“Mclaren Falls” is a variety of the commonly known, Swamp Cypress, and is a fabulous weeping tree that will tolerate heavy soils. The rich green foliage hangs from pendulous branches on this deciduous conifer. The branches will reach the ground and makes this an eye-catching tree. The tree is further accentuated with yellow autumn colours before the leaves fall. It grows with a somewhat umbrella shape to about 3 m tall and the same wide. This variety prefers to grow in full sun on a well-drained site that does not dry out but will grow well on heavy, wet soils. It also tolerates wind, frost, and cool climates. The Swamp Cypress is a great tree for planting in wetter areas of a garden and for planting around water features such as ponds. It makes for a great specimen and is well suited to including in a mixed planting.
