Dawn Redwood
Dawn Redwood Metasequoia glyptostroboides 100' One of the most spectacular of the ornamental trees.

The wide irregular trunk looks like something out of a fairy tale with its iridescent golden-orange bark that becomes deeply grooved, hollowed and fluted with age. The bright green deciduous needles turn orange in the fall. Grows quickly, up to 50' in 15–20 years, with many small-diameter horizontal branches and a uniform conical habit. Give it lots of space to grow!

Highly adaptable, easy to transplant. Prefers moist deep well-drained slightly acid soil in full sun. Will tolerate wet or dry sites. Pollution resistant; good specimen or street tree, rarely needs pruning.

Fossils dating back 50 million years have been found in Japan. Thought to be extinct until it was “rediscovered” in central China in 1941. Resembles California redwoods only vaguely. Native to China and Japan. Z4. (1-3' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

Conifers

Evergreens tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer a pH between 5.5–6.5. In dry or well-drained areas, dip tree roots in Agri-gel solution before planting to protect roots from drying out; do not use in heavy clay soils or wet areas.
Young conifers need ¾–1" of rain per week. Periodic deep waterings are far more beneficial than frequent sprinklings. No fertilization is necessary in the first year.
