Glyptostrobus pensilis

The deciduous Chinese Swamp Cypress is smaller than its American distant cousin, hails from a milder climate and is said to prefer more moisture in cultivation. That said, a tree over half a century old at Nymans, Sussex, grows in ordinary soil, nowhere near water, and one of the largest in the UK grows in a park in Wolverhampton showing how it is actually very hardy. The feathery fine foliage is a bright, light-green in summer, turning to a uniform copper-orange in autumn. Potentially a conical tree to at least 13m in the UK, often smaller. At its v. finest in moist soil.

Pot size: 2L
