Up until the mid-1900s, the Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia
glyptostroboides) was known only in the form of fossils, thought
to have been extinct for perhaps 20 million years. That changed
in 1944, after a living specimen was discovered alive and well by
a surprised forester in the Chinese province of Szechwan. Today,
this amazing "living fossil" is available from nurseries like
Mature Dawn Redwoods are broadly conical, and grow to heights of
50 to 100 feet tall from thick buttressed trunks. The foliage is
wonderfully soft, presenting different tones throughout the year,
and the needles very closely resemble those of the Dawn's close
relative, California's Coast Redwood. In stature and form these
trees are very like California's redwoods, but smaller. Unlike
the famous California Redwoods, Dawn Redwoods are deciduous,
shedding their needles each fall and sending out bright new
growth each spring.
Dawn Redwoods are very cold hardy, easily handling temperatures
into the -20°'s F. They can grow successfully in diverse settings
and situations, but thrive best in full sun and moist soils. They
are a good candidate for bonsai, amenable to pruning and shaping.
