Like the famous Frank Lloyd Wright house, Falling Waters Baldcypress (or “Bald Cypress”) is a work of art. This rare and choice tree features branches that arch and weep and fine, feathery foliage that turns coppery orange in fall. Unusual among conifers, this one loses its leaves in the fall, putting that interesting architectural framework into full view all winter. Plant it in the front yard where it will be the showpiece of the landscape, or plant it near your deck or patio where you entertain, and it will be a sure conversation starter at your next get-together.

The Story

Baldcypress is a charismatic tree native to swampy regions of the Deep South.  Related to the ancient Redwoods of the West, trees in the East can reach the venerable age of 1,800 years.  This selection was brought to the U.S. from Germany by an American immigrant with a story of his own, named Harald Neubauer.  As a boy, Neubauer and his family fled their native Poland for East Germany when the Russian Army advanced, later escaping again to West Germany.  Harald eventually settled in Tennessee.  His friend, nurseryman Don Shadow, named this plant.

The Details

This is the uniquest tree I've ever seen! It's so unique that I'm even creating new words to express my thoughts...not exactly your common "weeping" tree. Green deciduous needles turn bronze in fall before dropping for winter. A great form for winter interest in the garden. Falling Waters also showcases reddish brown bark that peels in strips. There's only one way to enjoy this awesome tree - plant one for yourself!

How to Grow

Falling Waters is a strongly weeping plant and may need staking to continue to guide it into an upright form.  You can also let the branches arch and tumble as they will.  Though a native of swamps, this tree will grow just fine in drier soil, and even though it’s a native of the Deep South, it is cold-hardy to Vermont.  Pests are rarely a problem—the only time it makes homeowners panic is when they don’t realize that this conifer is supposed to drop its needles!
