Why the Falling Waters Bald Cypress?

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.

Bald Cypress 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.

How to use in the landscape?

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 Plant

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!

How To Water

Water deeply, and regularly during first few years in the ground. Irrigate weekly, especially during prolonged dry spells or extreme heat after it’s established.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
