I think this was a 15-gallon plant. It was $50. About 36" wide and 100" (8’) tall at time of purchase on 8-19-2015.
Grows cypress knees if grown in standing water, but can also grow in drier soils. Grows to 50-70’ tall and 25’ wide at maturity. Medium growth – 13 – 24" per year. Full sun. Pyramidical. State tree of Louisiana.
