Taxodium huegelii NJM 09.037 (syn. T. mucronatum)

The Mexican Swamp Cypress is such a fabulously charismatic tree in the wild where it forms a more pendant branch habit than its American cousin and trees of vast trunk sizes can be found, without the knobbly 'knees' or pneumatophores from the roots. Foliage is slow to fall and turns to a vivid tawny-orange in early winter. Kew has a 100yr old specimen, so it's fully hardy. Easy at pond edge or in ordinary well drained soil. Seed for these was collected in Coahuila State, Mexico, in 2009.

Pot size: 2L
