Large Redwood Bonsai Tree (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides)

Large Redwood Bonsai Tree (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides)


The Dawn Redwood, a native of Manchuria China, is truly the most fascinating among Redwoods. Once believed to be extinct, it was rediscovered in the 1940s and is a genuine Redwood species. This living fossil is a unique remnant from an era when vast forests of these trees flourished. The seeds were introduced to the U.S. in 1948, and since then, it has gained popularity as an ornamental tree.

Its foliage is more intricate than the native Redwood, but the most distinctive feature of the Dawn Redwood is its deciduous nature. In autumn, the light green sprays turn yellow, then bronze, before falling off - a characteristic shared only by the Larches. This tree is 8 years old and stands 18-19" tall.

During spring, it produces 5-6mm long cones. A suitable humidity/drip tray is recommended and can be added at a small additional cost.

Please note that this tree may be shipped with mature, transitioning foliage in late summer (August) as it prepares for dormancy. It may also be shipped with no foliage during autumn and winter. The tree will emerge from dormancy and regrow its foliage in early Spring.
