Tough stuff for the farm List   Records 41 - 44 of 44

TAXODIUM ascendens - Pond Cypress
A very erect, columnar North American tree with ascending (upward rising) branches. Smaller and slimmer than its cousin, the swamp cypress. Grows in normal conditions but can also handle very wet soils. Soft feathery new foliage is brilliant green in spring, turning to mid-green in summer and becoming rich golden brown in autumn. Reasonably wind tolerant.
Deciduous - 8m x 4m

TAXODIUM distichum - Swamp Cypress, Bald Cypress
Large conifer with soft feathery foliage which emerges as a brilliant green in spring, turning to mid-green in summer and becoming rich golden brown in autumn. Will grow in or near water, making it a perfect choice for swampy areas or pond surrounds. Will also grow in normal to dry soils. Reasonably wind tolerant.
Deciduous - 10m x 5m

TAXODIUM mucronatum - Mexican Swamp Cypress
Rapidly growing giant, with strongly weeping branches and a distinct conical shape. Displays rich bronze colour in winter and has long, narrow cones. Great for planting alongside streams or in wet problem areas, though won't grow in standing water. Hardy in all areas but prefers damp or wet soils
Evergreen - 8m x 5m at 10years

VITEX lucens - Puriri
A large native tree with round-headed spreading canopy, excellent for specimen planting in the paddock or lawn, or for use in mixed plantings of natives, especially on windy and/or coastal sites. Maintains juvenile shrubby form for several years. Small dull-red year-round flowers are followed by bright orange-red fruit, enjoyed by native pigeons. Will grow in dry to damp (not wet) soils. Moderately frost tender.
Evergreen - 6m x 5m @ 10 years
