Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Miss Grace' is a unique form of the Dawn Redwood that has 'graceful' pendulous branches with soft delicate green foliage. If staked, the weeping branches have a very elegant, sculptural form which is very ornamental. In the fall, the deciduous foliage transforms into a rich orange color and eventually shed to showcase a peeling bark for winter.
'Miss Grace' was originally discovered as a prostrate witch's broom in New York state and then later introduced in Oregon.
Growth rate is approximately 1 - 6" (2.5 - 15cm) per year depending on growing conditions. Best planted as a standalone specimen tree where the graceful weeping branches can be appreciated. When pruned and shaped properly, it can be more aesthetically pleasing.
