Why the Lindsey's Skyward™ Bald Cypress?
Lindsey’s Skyward™ Bald Cypress will be a green exclamation point in your landscape, providing a strong vertical element with its svelte, upright habit. This perky, compact version of our native Bald Cypress Tree is just the thing to give your garden a little pizzazz. Its upswept branches and soft, feathery foliage give it a look unlike any other conifer you’ll find. Plant a single specimen as a focal point in a mixed border or plant a pair of trees on either side of a gate, path, or bench to highlight a particular feature in your garden. We are pleased to be able to offer this exciting new tree!
Bald Cypress conjures up images of the Okefenokee Swamp on the Georgia-Florida border, where this majestic tree grows right in the water among the alligators and water moccasins. In wet places it often grows woody “knees,” which protrude from the water. Bald Cypress grows just fine in average garden soil as well and is surprisingly cold-hardy given its southern roots. Lindsey’s Skyward™ originated as a chance seedling at the tree farm of Robert Lindsey of Mustang, Oklahoma, in 1990. The new plant was unique for its extremely upright habit, its fullness from top to bottom, its slow growth rate (it was 23 feet tall after 20 years), and its lack of surface roots in wet soil.
How to use in the landscape?
Deciduous conifers are funny plants that look like evergreens, but lose their needles for the winter. Your neighbors may be very concerned when your “evergreen” tree goes bare! Before Lindsey’s Skyward™ Bald Cypress disrobes in late fall, its soft, feathery foliage will take on warm coppery orange tones, putting on a lovely show of late-season color.

How To Plant
Plant Lindsey’s Skyward™ Bald Cypress in a sunny location. This tree isn’t fussy about soil and will happily grow in clay and will love that troublesome part of your yard where water drains poorly. Average soils are fine, too, and this tree will even tolerate some drought once established.
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 To Prune
Due to the tight, compact structure of the Lindsey's Skyward™ Bald Cypress, pruning is not required. However, if an errant branch occurs, it would be best to prune in late winter.

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!
