Amber Glow Metasequoia

Dawn Redwood is one of the most visually intriguing redwoods you'll find, once thought to be extinct, it is a treasure in the American garden. Especially those varieties bearing bright yellow foliage, but these sunny–hued varieties tend to fry in the hot sun. That's why we love Amber Glow™, the Dawn Redwood that can take full sun without burning. Its foliage remains golden instead of browning, touched with burgundy in spring and a spark of orange in fall. It grows quicker than most, with a feathery, dense, pyramidal habit. Given about 25 years, Amber Glow will reach 30–35' tall. Perfect in a line along the property perimeter.
