'Falling Waters' is a choice weeping selection of the Bald Cypress, a native of the bayous and swamps of the southern USA. Unlike many weeping trees however, Falling Waters still "has a spine" and continues upward growth without the need to be staked. It is draped in soft, feathery sage-green needled foliage that invites the hand. Unlike most conifers, these turn an impressive coppery bronze, before dropping in the fall.
