The Metasequoia 'Gold Rush' otherwise known as the Golden Dawn Redwood is a large deciduous tree with pale green leaves which change in the Autumn, it also has a reddish-brown bark. The Gold Rush is a conifer with a vaguely conical outline whilst young, with soft yellow needles that become green as the tree matures.
The Dawn Redwood ‘Gold Rush’ is the ideal tree for boggy or waterlogged sites in either a sunny or partially shaded area. Dissimilar from other cone-bearing trees it loses its leaves each year, in the Winter. As the tree matures, the trunk widens at the base and develops fluting which on occasion is incredibly intricate.
The Metasequoia would make a spectacular tree for pond edges or stream banks. It is also ideal for large gardens or woodland areas. This tree would be a stunning and dominant feature to a garden. It is an architectural tree as its strong form, bold colours, straight trunk and wide spreading crown.
The Dawn Redwood is a low maintenance tree which requires minimal pruning and is virtually pest and disease free.
