Young Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Glaucum have elegant, awl-like, blue tinted foliage with attractively scaly stems. Grown up they are the colossus of the tree world, achieving a staggering height and girth. Non-natives, they adapt superbly to the British climate and have for centuries been planted as awe inspiring specimens in large gardens, estates or public parkland.

Giant redwoods are indigenous to the western slopes of the Sierra Navada in California, where they grow naturally in monumental groves. The name Sequoiadendron comes from the 19th-century Cherokee linguist Sequojah. Its Victorian name, ‘Wellingtonia,’ was acquired following the death of the Duke of Wellington in 1852.


This tree is only suitable for a very large garden, estate or parkland but it can be a great point of interest in large school grounds or as a focal point in a suitable area of public or common land
