Description
Description
A lovely, deciduous conifer, Metasequoia glyptostroboides has soft, feathery foliage that is lush green throughout the spring and summer, before turning yellow and bronze in the autumn. Known as a Dawn Redwood or Water Larch tree, it has rough, fibrous and dark mahogany brown bark. Metasequoia glyptostroboides will grow to 12 x 5 metres in 20 years and is most deserving of a space in gardens with enough space, as it is critically endangered in the wild. Plant this tree in a sheltered position with sun or partial shade in moist, well-drained soil. It will tolerate waterlogged soils and boggy positions if planted out of exposure.
