Taxodium distichum 'Peve Minaret' photo gallery

dcsteg(5 Shawnee, KS.)July 12, 2011

This delicate cultivar is another example of touchable foliage.

Thick soft, green fern-like foliage covers the entire branchlets and turns a warm burnt orange in the fall. 'Peve Minaret' will reach 6 feet tall by 3 feet wide in 10 years if given its ideal conditions of full sun and wet soil. Zone 5-9.

My young one is just a fuzzy stick. Like one of your branches. Did you limb that one up to make room underneath?

Dave, this one is was found as a dwarf seedling selection by Piet Vergeldt from The Netherlands.
His advise is to cut it back it's side branches heavy when the plants are getting older so a very nice dense full habit will arise.
If I were you I should do this in the beginning of next Spring...

Here is a link that might be useful:

i dont like joy's picture .... why trim a Td to look like a common arb .... whats that all about ...

and what is the point of lining them out to screen the greenhouse.. if they shed all the needles ... though i guess .... in theory.. it could cool the house.. in summer.. by blocking sun .. and in winter.. heat the house by allowing it in ... who knows.. maybe there is some theory behind it all ...

i appreciate the application .. i appreciate the hard work at maintaining them....

i just think its weird ...

I think whatever snow load or ice you normally get should be considered when pruning. You have to prune to accommodate it or you'll end up with a mess. My unpruned Bald Cypress looks so bad from heavy, wet snow caused breakage I'm considering taking it down.

Yep, Mike is right, you'll never forgive yourself if it's damaged by heavy snow fall.
Ken, you're also a bit right, from a distance they look in summer like a normal arb but when you're getting closer you'll see a nice dense Taxodium with a very special texture...

Do these grow well from cuttings? I think it would be a very nice plant for a trough garden. I love the texture of the foliage. Dave I appreciate you entering the hardiness zone of this plant.
