Taxodium distichum, commonly known as Bald cypress is a deciduous conifer native to swamps and wetlands of the Florida and Southeastern United States. A beautiful ornamental large tree, it typically reaches heights of tall 20 ft or more and is naturally very symmetrical in shape. It is commonly used in landscaping to line avenues and frame parks.

Taxodium distichum can also tolerate harsh environmental conditions, such as temperature extremes and extreme light or water levels. It is flood tolerant and even grows near sea-level in some areas, where it can tolerate salt spray. In colder regions, growing Taxodium distichum in a pot is possible. Ensure the soil is kept moist and provide plenty of direct sunlight. In cold climates, the soil should be mixed with compost, which helps create a warmer, more moist environment for the tree.

Taxodium distichum grows in USDA Zones 4-9. The tree offers interest in the landscape all year round. The foliage is a light to medium green hue in summer and gold, rusty brown and orange colors in autumn. Additionally, its bark is soft and fibrous and exfoliates in strips when mature.

This is a great tree for urban and coastal areas, as it is able to withstand pollution and wind. It may be used in windbreaks and living fences, to give the landscape a unique and colorful touch. Taxodium distichum is an ideal ornamental tree that can be used to shape and create a beautiful landscape.

Before the leaves drop, they turn spectacular bright orange to rusty brown. Usually occurs on moist soils along streams, or on low, poorly drained sites. It is drought tolerant when established.

Family: Taxaceae
USDA Zone: 5-7?
USDA Plant Hardiness MapCan be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPoisonous or toxicSubtropical, mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Taxus baccata, commonly known as English Yew, is a small tree that can be used for bonsai and can grow up to 10 to 20 feet tall. It prefers full sun to partial shade and needs regular water for optimum health. It can also survive moderate water, however, it is not drought tolerant. The mature plant is cold hardy and can withstand temperatures up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit for short periods of time. Taxus baccata typically grows in USDA Zone 5 - 7.

This plant is excellent for use in ornamental horticulture because of its dense dark green foliage, and its ability to adapt to severe pruning. It is remarkable for its formal hedges and topiary and can develop shapes that are very complicated.

When growing Taxus baccata in pots, make sure to use high-quality potting soil, and ensure that the potted plant is given ample amount of water and is kept from extreme weather conditions. Watering schedules should be adjusted according to the season. Potted plants in cooler regions should be moved indoors during winter to protect them from extreme cold.

Taxus baccata is toxic, so care should be taken in handling and pruning.

Tecoma alata, also known as the Orange Trumpet flower is a large shrub or a vine or creeper native to Peru. Growing anywhere from 5-10ft tall, this plant is an eye catcher with its bright yellow and orange flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Beautiful loose clusters of orange trumpet-like blooms are borne from mid-summer to fall on this upright to spreading woody perennial. It grows best in full sun to semi-shade and needs regular watering. Once it reaches maturity it is fairly hardy, able to withstand temperatures as low as 30°F for a short period of time. This beauty can be grown in USDA Zones 8-11. Dwarf variety hybrid is very slow growing and has well-branched with compact habit.

When grown in a pot the Tecoma alata will require the same full sun position. Make sure to provide it with the same regular watering and fertilizer applications to keep it healthy. What's great about keeping it in a pot is that you can move it indoors to a cool, protected area during the cooler months so it is able to withstand temperatures lower than 30°F when grown in cold regions. The beauty of this plant's size means it is perfect as a container plant and a great addition to your porch or patio.

Origin: Tropical America
USDA Plant Hardiness MapLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallSmall plant 2-5 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterYellow, orange flowersSubtropical, mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Lydia is a product of Tecoma breeding project of George Hull in Phoenix. She is indeed a beautiful everbloomer that can be expected to be in bloom from very early spring until frost.

Compared to other yellow Tecomas, Lydia is a very compact, dwarf shrub, flowers are clear, soft lemon-yellow color with white throat. Unlike traditional varieties, it is a sterile hybrid that doesn't produce messy seeds that most tecomas do.

Tecomas do appreciate a bit of extra fertilizer so monthly during the growing season, a small application will induce more new growth and flowering.
