The Goldrush Dawn Redwood began as a miraculous golden seedling, to become a coveted collectors’ tree, and no wonder. It grows very rapidly into a tall, upright, pyramidal tree with a sturdy central trunk, beautiful bark, and flaring buttresses at the base. Its needles are bright, clear gold, holding that color well in summer, and turning bright yellow in fall, before the tree goes dormant for winter. It makes an amazing specimen tree for any garden, and although it can grow very tall, and be 20 feet in just 10 years, it can be pruned easily as needed, to keep it short and slender.

  • Tall pyramidal tree with a strong central trunk
  • Needles are the color of liquid gold
  • Amazing specimen tree for any garden
  • Very fast growing, adding 2 feet every year
  • Can be pruned to keep it smaller, or turned into bonsai

Grow the Goldrush Dawn Redwood in a position with some shade in summer, to protect the foliage from scorching. It grows in most areas, and it is hardy in zone 5. It will grow best in richer soils, and it grows in ordinary or wet soil very well. Avoid dryness in summer. This tree will be magnificent in just a few years. Pests or diseases are not problems, and deer usually leave it alone.
