Product details

This Redwood is of great botanical interest.

It was discovered in China in the 1940s before which the genus consisted only of fossilised forms.

A deciduous conifer it has rapidly established itself as a huge urban and rural favourite.

Often confused with Taxodium it is quite different if they are seen together at close quarters.

Very large and statuesquely pyramidal it makes a grand park or specimen tree but is also good for streets and avenues with a clear stem.

It has spongy shaggy bark and its pale green feathery foliage turns brown in autumn.

The Dawn Redwood is tolerant of air pollution but needs a moist soil in its first year to establish successfully.

Mature heights and crown spread can vary depending on environmental conditions

Mature height: 20m+

Mature spread: 4-8m
