This great clonal variation of the better know Giant Redwood has been around since the late 1800s but is remains a rare tree to spot within the UK. Its foliage is a subtle blue, only really noticed for its vibrancy when stood beside its green parent. Sequoiadendron giganteum Glauca needs to be kept moist in the first few summers after planting to establish it well. Thereafter it can thrive on most soils, and grow deceptively rapidly.

Sequoiadendron giganteum Glauca only attains about two thirds the size of Sequoiadendron giganteum at maturity but it still needs a lot of room so is best suited for parklands and estates. Like most evergreens they are best planted either early or late, i.e. either in September / October or April / May.

Mature height: 12-17m
