An ancient tree that knew the dinosaurs but is well-suited to modern landscape plantings. Dawn Redwood is a deciduous conifer producing small round cones. It has a neat pyramidal shape in youth, maturing into a more rounded crown. The bright green, feathery leaves turn orange-brown or reddish-brown in the fall. Fast growing and easily transplanted. Likes full sun and prefers moist, deep, well-drained soils. One of the fastest growing trees available. Grows to 70'-100' with a 25' spread.
