Metasequoia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood)


A large tree of conical habit. Soft flaky cinnamon bark. Bright larch green leaves during summer becoming tawny pink and golden in autumn. Small green cones turn brown when ripe.

One of the most rewarding of trees to plant for the future.

Only first discovered in China in 1941 despite knowledge of its existence in pre-historic times from fossil records. (C. China)
