Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Dawn Redwood'
A very large tree with a neat, pyramid crown which is a great choice for urban, avenue or specimen planting. One of few deciduous conifers, the foliage is a flat needle, bright green, light and feathery turning fiery orangey-brown before falling. The bark is also attractive, reddish brown and fluted. Another identifying feature is that the buds, unlike other conifers, are on the underside of the twigs rather than above.
