Details

The Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) is an ancient tree related to the coastal redwoods of California. Dawn redwoods were once thought to be extinct and known only as fossils until the 1940s when one was discovered growing in a rice field in a remote region of central China. It was named the "discovery tree" and symbolizes the surprises still to be found in nature.

What makes the Dawn redwood truly special is that it is a deciduous coniferous tree. In the autumn, the light green foliage turns bronze and ultimately drops off, like leaves, as a normal part of growth, bringing the changing seasons to your desk or kitchen window.

Dawn Redwood makes a fast growing landscape tree or will bonsai very well due to the speed with which it grows. Growing bonsai from seed gives complete control over the styling of the tree and allows for the enjoyment of each stage of the tree’s growth.

  • From Chuck at 6/11/17 10:31 AM
    • On your feeding instructions for the "bonsai forest dawn redwood" you mention to fertilize every 2 weeks. What type of fertilizer should be used?

      Thanks
    • Complete-ratio fertilizers with a fairly balanced amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium -- such as 10-5-5, 12-6-6 or 18-6-12 -- act as your best bet for fertilizing timber trees such as the dawn redwood, according to North Carolina State University and studies performed by the University of California, Davis. Avoid fertilizers with nitrogen content any more than three times higher than phosphorus or potassium, as high-nitrogen fertilizer may exacerbate diseases such as redwood canker -- which causes die-back of twigs and branches -- in dawn redwood trees. Fast-release nitrogen-rich fertilizer is especially harmful. Dawn redwoods also thrive with iron-rich fertilizer or plant food.
