'Emerald Shadow' was found by the great nurseryman Don Shadow in a block of seedlings on his nursery while hunting rabbits with his grandson Elijah. He was struck by its extremely uniform upright habit, as well as its beautiful deep green foliage color. The deciduous ferny foliage turns a lovely amber yellow in the fall before dropping, leaving behind a beautifully uniform silhouette in winter. Taxodium 'Emerald Shadow' is both salt and wet site tolerant.
