1 left in stock
Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Gold Rush' (Dawn Redwood) is a large deciduous coniferous tree of great beauty. It features an upright, narrowly conical form that enhances many landscapes. Unlike most cone-bearing trees, it loses its foliage each winter. Delicate flat sprays of narrow, bright chartreuse yellow leaves emerge in spring, and mature to golden yellow in summer, before turning rich shades of orange-brown in the fall. Reddish on young trees, the bark on mature trees is darker, often deeply fissured, and attractively flared at the base. The glowing fall colour of its lacy needles, picturesque bark, and interesting winter silhouette are some outstanding characteristics of this Dawn Redwood. A spectacular tree for stream banks or pond edges. A single specimen is an imposing sight and groves are effective.
