Tree of the Week - september 22, 2003


Metasequoia glyptostroboides--Dawn Redwood 

Hardiness Zones: 4 to 8 
Height: 100 ft Spread: 40 ft Form: pyramidal 
Type: deciduous tree (conifer) 
Annual Growth Rate: more than 18 inches 

Comments: Dawn Redwood was known from fossils before living plants were discovered in China. Although it 
looks like an evergreen, the needles are deciduous - they change color and fall in autumn. The tree grows rapidly and presents beautiful fall color changes, and showy winter bark. The preferred soil is moist and moderately fertile.
