Question:
We live in Palatine, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago and would like any information regarding wintering Bald Cypress seedlings that are currently about 8 inches tall and are individually potted



Replies:
Dear Connie,

Since bald cypress occurs naturally at the extreme S part of Illinois, you can probably provide some winter protection to the seedlings as you would to other less hard shrubs and trees.
