What tree should you start your bonsai garden with? There are actually many types of bonsai trees to purchase. For example, one could get a Cotoneaster, a Chinese Elm, as well as Japanese Black Pine. But many people start with the Bald Cypress bonsai (sometimes spelled Bald Cyprus).

The scientific name for the Bald Cypress is Taxodium distichum. This conifer grows in many areas of Florida and Louisiana, and throughout the Southern United States, particularly in swampy areas. The Bald Cypress has been designated the official tree of the state of Louisiana. The bark is fibrous and has a reddish-brown color with small flat ridges and shallow furrows. The leaves of the Bald Cypress are deciduous and spread in flat planes in a feathery pattern on its branchlets.

So if you like damp swamps that are overrun by insects, you may enjoy seaching for a wild cypress bonsai tree, for they love these conditions... However, it isn't always practical to pick up your tree from a swampy wilderness, so you may want to check out your local nursury first. Or you can buy a bonsai tree online through our bonsai store or elsewhere.
