Montezuma Cypress and weeping Montezuma Cypress Trees … a very gracious brilliant green slender-leaved tree that can grow to 40′ wide and to 40′ tall in our area.

Pretty green cones grow on the branches in spring and turn to seed in fall. The Montezuma does not grow knees from the roots like its sister tree, the Bald cypress. Montezuma trees were used in pre-columbian times and also in Japanese gardens.
