2017 October Michael and Swamp Cypress

Michael & Swamp Cypress as Bonsai

Michael the Clubs’ Vice President did a great demonstration and information afternoon on the Swamp Cypress as Bonsai.

The swamp cypress or Taxodium distichum (bald cypress, southern-cypress, white-cypress, tidewater red-cypress, Gulf-cypress, red-cypress, or swamp cypress) is a deciduous conifer in the family Cupressaceae that grows on saturated and seasonally inundated soils in the lowlands of the Southeastern and Gulf Coastal Plains of the United States.

It is great bonsai material particularly here in SE Queensland. It likes wet feet and grows quickly is a very hardy plant.
