Quick Overview

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. Our Green Whisper® Bald Cypress are trimmed up to around 4-5 ft from the ground, these would also be great in the parkway's to add shade to streets and homes. Green Whisper® Bald Cypress grows excellent in wet locations and can actually help remove wet spots from the yard. Native to the wetlands of the South, Green Whisper® Bald Cypress also does surprisingly well in dryer soils and urban climates. Green Whisper® Bald Cypress is all around a fantastic tree. This tree should be planted at least 15 Ft away from buildings.

What it needs:

Green Whisper® Bald Cypress is tolerant of most conditions and is a good substitute for evergreens in wet locations. Be sure to follow our watering guidelines for the first few growing seasons until the root system is well-established.
