Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Miss Grace'

Pronunciation:
Metasequoia (met-uh-see-KWOY-uh)
glyptostroboides (glip-toh-stroh-BOY-deez)

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.
