February’s worst pollen offenders? Bald Cypress and Juniper. Counts are moderate right now.
Alas, Jupiter is a common ground cover given it’s extremely resistant to heat and drought.
Native to swampy conditions, the bald cypress is another “survivor,” also able to withstand dry, sunny weather and is hardy in USDA climate zones 5 through 10.
The bald cypress tree can survive for centuries. Growing slowly, the bald cypress will get taller and taller for roughly 200 years, reaching heights of up to 150 feet. The trees usually live for 600 years, though some specimens are said to have survived for more than 1,000 years!
