Late Summer Growth on Bald Cypress Tree - September 2020
Yesterday, I posted a couple of photos showing off some late Summer growth on our Dawn Redwood and today, wanted to add an entry to my Garden Diary showing off some similar growth on our *other* deciduous conifer: the Bald Cypress in our front yard. The last time that I posted about this tree was earlier this in January when it was showing some buds on the tree.
Similar to the Dawn Redwood, I haven't totally baby'd this tree, but have done some hand watering around the mulch ring. This tree is 'downhill' from one of our gutter pop-ups, so whatever rain we *do* get, this tree gets some benefit. I also tried to break up the "clay bowl" prior to planning this tree back in 2018. The needles on this tree - at this point in the Summer - aren't a bright, vibrant green, but this new growth (on the tips) is providing a nice pop of color.
This tree is planted pretty close to the north property line - between our driveway and the new construction site next door. You can see the location of this tree in this post on our front yard trees.
I also showed the caliper of this tree having a measurement of 1.21" back in January, so I'll be watching that for growth.
