Dawn Redwood

Large, Graceful and Fast-Growing 


The Dawn Redwood is a massive, fast-growing tree.  It would look great as a shade tree in your yard or as a street planting. It would also look attractive as a container plant on your patio while it’s still small.


Despite its massive size, the Dawn Redwood has a gentleness about it. Run the foliage through your fingers. You’ll experience its soft and fern-like texture, so unlike what you might expect from a large deciduous tree.


The foliage begins as light green in the spring, transforming to deep green in the summer. The leaves turn a lovely reddish-bronze before their autumn descent in preparation for a winter rest.
 
The Redwood has horizontal branching that continues all the way to the ground, affording it a stately pyramidal presence in your yard. If you prefer ground clearance though, it adapts well to being trimmed a bit. 
 
The Redwood is an ancient tree known to have been in existence as long as 50 million years ago, but is currently on the endangered list in the wild. Growing a Dawn Redwood is a pleasure in and of itself, but growing one on your property is also an investment in the future.
