Imported from USA
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 Jonsteen.
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.
