Sequoiadendron giganteum

Giant Sequoia, Sequoia gigantea, Big Tree

The Sequoia is not called "Giant" for nothing. With its massive trunk (up to 30 feet wide), it is considered the largest tree in the world. It is also one of the tallest trees on earth, reaching 325 feet. Its dense foliage is bushier and less clear than that of its relative, the Coast Redwood's. Blue-green when young, its foliage turns bright yellow-green with maturity. Its thick, ridged, fibrous bark and small cones are reddish brown. Adapt to cold dry climates and high altitudes. For best growth, water deeply and regularly until established.
