This new gold needled redwood was found by one of our favorite plant geeks, Andy Schenck from Sam Brown’s Nursery. It has extraordinary spring, summer and fall color that will light up any garden space. Each spring, bright, lime-green needles emerge with a rosy-orange frosting, making for a two-toned effect. As the summer days grow longer, and the heat and humidity pick up, the needles change to bright, chartreuse and don’t fade until fall brings on a bright, orange hue.
This new selection will be the soul and fire of your garden, lighting it up in spring, summer and fall. Soul Fire can take full sun, but will be just as colorful in part shade. Use it as an accent in a mixed border or a focal specimen in any garden space for months of color and a gorgeous backdrop to flowering shrubs. Dawn redwoods are also good for urban sites where temperature and soil moisture extremes can often be extreme.
