This is a columnar variety with dense horizontal branching. It is very symmetrical and straight growing making it adaptable for more restricted spaces. As its name suggests it needs a moist, or even wet, location. It grows rapidly to 20' and then more slowly to 70'.

A tight narrow cone (to 30-70') with no pruning, this native from swampy areas of the southeast has fine-textured needles, bright green in spring, apricot in fall before they drop; can live to 1000 yrs old! S/M-W

Pond Cypress with upright habit and soft textured bright green needles. Eventually grows to 35' tall. As one could guess, it tolerates wet sites very well.
