Peve Minaret Dwarf Bald Cypress

Taxodium distichum 'Peve Minaret'

An exceptional dwarf shrub with an upright, pyramidal form. Feathery, dark green, deciduous foliage provides season-long color and turns a rust color in fall. Papery, chestnut-red bark provides excellent winter interest. Great for use as a landscape accent, or in mass plantings for a highly textured background or informal screen.
