Imagine being able to keep your bald cypress the exquisite fluffy bright green of spring for the entire year. The green whisper bald cypress makes that possible. Selected by Shady Grove Plantation in South Carolina. The green whisper brings all the outstanding characteristics of a bald cypress along with year-long fresh green color and an outstanding pyramidal shape. We've seen quite a few of the shade tree bald cypress and green whisper is our personal favorite.
The bald cypress is a large, fast growing tree. It is a deciduous conifer meaning the needles will drop in the fall and regrow in the spring adding to the charm by providing a beautiful coppery fall color. It makes a great lawn specimen tree adding texture to your yard with its feathery needled branches and fibrous reddish bark. If you have room plant multiple trees to use for the cover trees of a shade garden. Their airy branching with the fine needles allows for light to reach the bottom and their dropped needles provide good winter cover for the plants underneath. These trees are native to the southeastern wetlands and do well in wet soils but are also tolerant to occasional droughts.

Updating my review from 1 star to 5 star!
well it's been more than a few days since our last correspondence. the trees seemed like they were in a state of suspended animation for the longest time after arrival. when they arrived they had buds and some leaves and that is how they stayed for weeks, which is better than drying up and dieing, but it prompted me to reach out to you and complain they were no longer viable trees. You suggested giving them some time. well i did and finally I started noticing that there were new leaves emerging here and there on the redbuds and the bald cypress buds seemed to be swelling up and getting bigger.
I went to a local property owner and their bald Cyprus wasn't budding out yet either, so guess I need wait some more, then i noticed the red-bud trees in my city were blossoming and starting to leaf, yet my trees were still not doing much. Again i getting concerned. I think your trees appreciated the move north, our nights our cooler and we get a few warmer days and then few cooler days. it appears the trees I ordered didn't want to wake up to my weather here in Wisconsin.
well finally a couple weeks ago they did finally decide to wake up, I didn't write then because iI just want to see how committed they were to start growing. Finally I can report that all seems well, red buds are putting out new leaves, and heading in right direction and them lazy Bald cypress have decided to join the living also with there unique feathery leaves (needles).
hoping the Bald cypress does well it sure has become a curiosty of the area. As most people first can't identify it and second dont belive it will survive this far north. They do, I have seen some growing here, in Wisconsin
Patience! patience! is the keyword, but it sure took a while. Now I know. Thanks for your patience also. I will be looking to order in the future to complete my 6 species of redbud tree island.
The plants seem fine but they've only been in the ground two days. There was a problem with the shipping but the owner of the company handled very well it was a problem Beyond his control and he went out and did what he needed to do. Will definitely be buying from him again
