Lindsey's Skyward™ Bald Cypress is a very columnar deciduous conifer that is considered a dwarf Taxodium. The fern-like needles emerge in lovely shades of soft green, displayed on very upward facing branches. As the summer progresses the foliage deepens to dark green, followed by amber and copper colors for an extended period in autumn. Winter interest is provided by the dramatic symmetrical columnar habit, after the needles have fallen to make a showy bronze carpet. Taxodium distichum Lindsey's Skyward™ is an excellent choice for compact sites as well as wet sites. It has a non-aggressive root system with no surface roots or knees. Found as a chance seedling by the Oklahoma nurseryman Robert Michael Lindsey.
