Metasequoia glyptostroboides

Dawn Redwood

The exquisite Metasequoia glyptostroboides, a deciduous, slower-growing and hardier tree than its Sequoia cousin, develops a handsome, conical habit with horizontal branching and red-brown bark. Its feathery foliage is light green in spring and unusual peach bronze in fall. Once thought extinct, this plant was discovered in a hidden valley in China in 1945. This durable park-sized tree prefers moist soils and is virtually carefree.
