Taxodium distichum is also known as bald cypress, swamp cypress, southern-cypress, white-cypress, et cetera. They are a deciduous tree, so in all but the warmest climates they drop their leaves in the winter. This means in turn that – in the spring – they throw out new shoots and can be very vigorous growers.

Here are some shots from the garden from a handful of swamp cypress bonsai.
