The Metasequoia, or Dawn Redwood, is an ancient species that was thought to be extinct for some time. Like a bald cypress, this is a deciduous conifer that will drop its foliage in winter. This is a strong-growing species that really lends itself to forest plantings. Grown from seed at Kaede Bonsai-en, these trees are well established in 2 1/4" containers.

Common Name(s): Metasequoia, Dawn Redwood

Latin Name: Metasequoia glyptostroboides

Type: Deciduous Conifer

Native to: China

Climate: Hardy in Zones 4-8, this species thrives in a wide range of climates.

Care: The Dawn Redwood backbuds well, especially when young. To stimulate lower branching, one can cut the tree back after the first flush of foliage has hardened off.

Size: 8-12"

Notes: This is a deciduous tree and therefore will not have foliage during the winter.
