The Montezuma Cypress is a Mexican relative of the bald cypress, with a strong upright trunk, rounded crown and weeping branches. It is fast growing, reaching 70 feet in 30 years, with a spread of around 30 feet. The striking tan bark peels in strips, and the base of the tree matures quickly into a broad, ancient-looking base. The slender needles are in two rows along the branches, and they are evergreen or semi-evergreen. This is a rare and beautiful specimen tree for a lawn, or beside a pond, stream or lake. It is a very long-lived tree.

  • Remarkable evergreen tree with rounded crown
  • Soft green needles on pendulous branchlets
  • Ancient, mature trunk develops quickly
  • Grows well in wet ground or standing water
  • Rare, exotic and beautiful

The Montezuma Cypress is hardy from zone 8 into all warmer zones, and it is reported to also grow in zone 7, in a sheltered location. It grows in all soils, fastest in moist to wet conditions, but in ordinary soil too, and even surviving on dry soil. It has no pests or diseases and needs no pruning or special care to develop its majestic form quickly. It can also be trimmed into a unique hedge, and it is a popular subject for bonsai growing.
