Sequoiadendron giganteum Glaucum (Giant Redwood Glaucum)

“Sequoiadendron giganteum Glaucum is an evergreen, coniferous tree with a narrow, conical form that grows extremely tall. However, it doesn’t grow as tall as its sister tree, the Giant Redwood, and its growth isn’t as vigorous.

It’s principal features are its reddish trunk, the soft and fibrous bark, and the coarse needle growth that offers a striking silvery grey/blue hue. The branches hang down more than those of the species and the ends grow upwards slightly.

This version of the redwood is hardy, wind resistant, and can reach a height of up to 40 metres. Its initial growth is narrowly pyramidal whilst its growth become broader as it ages, growing out to about 6 to 8 metres.  Cones are also prevalent from the outset – at first the cones are upright, but once they ripen, after the 2nd year, they hang down.

Can be planted in any soil type but expects a certain amount of dampness with some nutrients in the soil to encourage growth and a healthy start.”
