Redwood trees are some of the most prestigious among their botanical peers. And among Redwoods, the Gold Rush Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Gold Rush') is often considered the most highly sought-after. With a quick-growing nature and glowing gold foliage, it's easy to understand why.
The Gold Rush Dawn Redwood towers above other trees, often putting on up to twenty-four inches in one year. It offers lucky homeowners with an established landscaping appearance without having to wait decades.
And, of course, it is quite the looker with a pyramidal shape that becomes wider and fuller over the course of decades.
When showing off its new growth, the Gold Rush Dawn Redwood is the golden child of the Redwood world. With brilliant yellow to yellow-green needles, it looks like it glows in the sunshine. And its needles are as soft as a baby's curls.
As summer turns into fall, prepare yourself, your Gold Rush will teach you new lessons in love as it turns from glowing yellow to a deep auburn.
While the Gold Rush Redwood enjoys rich soils for maximum performance and growth, it will thrive in wet soils, as well. It does like to keep its feet wet, so quench its thirst with some extra water during the hottest times of the year.
It also isn't bothered by many diseases, so you don't have to constantly check for ailments or keep your local arborist's number on speed dial.
The Gold Rush Dawn Redwood makes a statement as a specimen tree that will provide your yard with long-lasting charm. You can also use several to turn your boggy backyard into a tree sanctuary with unbeatable color. You can even keep this giant petite using bonsai techniques.
We expect a rush of buyers for the stately, stunning, and extraordinary Gold Rush Dawn. Don't wait or you may find yourself regretting not being able to enjoy this king among Redwoods.
