Why it rocks:
Green Whisper® Bald Cypress has the appearance of an evergreen tree, but it will actually lose its needle-like leaves in the fall after they turn a brilliant copper color. In the Spring and Summer, it's needle-like leaves are a very light green color. Green Whisper® Bald Cypress has an outstanding coppery fall color and a soft droopy needle which adds texture to the landscape. This tree is a mystical wonder. The needles on the Green Whisper® Bald Cypress are longer and thinner than the Bald Cypress, which makes for a more droopy look overall.
Where to put it:
Green Whisper® Bald Cypress is often planted in the same locations as an evergreen tree would normally be planted, along property lines, at the corner of a property, as a focal point in a yard. They are great for adding privacy and screening to your yard.
