National Road™ Pondcypress was found by Earl Cully (the father of Betula nigra Heritage®) growing beside the old National Road in Norwich, Ohio. He chose it for its obvious excellent cold tolerance (it had been there since the 1830s) and beautiful pyramidal shape. The deciduous foliage is fern-like and a soft green. The fall color is shades of amber and tan, falling to make a delicate tan rug under the tree. Taxodium National Road™ is tolerant of a wide range of conditions, from wet to dry and sun to partial shade.
