The bald cypress (Taxodium distichum)

The leaves of the dawn redwood or Metasequoia glyptostroboides are similar to those of the bald cypress (Taxodium distichum), which often has "knees" when planted in or near water. It has been discovered that the dawn redwood too could produce the large, contorted boles for which the bald cypress is well known, if left branched to the ground in full sun.


On the left you can see foliage of the bald cypress, on the right that of a dawn redwood.
The branches of the bald cypress are not opposite and the leaves are somewhat pointy while the foliage of Metasequoia is more rounded.
