In nature the Bald Cypress can survive in areas where the winter low temperature goes well below zero, and also in areas where the winter lows never go below freezing. For that reason, it can be grown indoors or outdoors. It is an unusual tree in that it is a deciduous conifer (like the Japanese Larch and the Dawn Redwood) which is a tree that bears cones but loses its needles in winter. The Redwoods and the Bald Cypress are native to North America. In nature, the Bald Cypress are found mostly in the southeastern United States and Mexico.
