Dawn Redwood Plants are available in 2 sizes:
Dawn Redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides, is one of our favorite shade trees. The Dawn Redwood is from Central China and was discovered in 1941. All of the Dawn Redwood specimens relate to this Chinese population.
The Dawn Redwood's beautiful and delicate fern like needles appear light green spring and turn gold in autumn, then drop and return again to glory in spring. Don't be afraid to grow it in a big pot - we have four foot redwoods in pots and they will grow happily like this - but keep well watered in summer.
Makes a superb bonsai tree. This is the part of species preservation we like to see. Here a very rare plant was brought into cultivation and now is spread nationwide for the enjoyment of everyone. This Dawn Redwood species is safe and sound, and is a very attractive tree.
The Dawn Redwood makes a great specimen, or in clumps, and also as a border or fence line tree. The foliage is more lacey looking than the other two redwoods, and in the fall, the Dawn Redwood will turn red-yellow like a maple, aspen, or birch tree, but the Dawn Redwood is a deciduous conifer tree!
