Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are one of the oldest plant families on Earth. Although they thrive in the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest, they can adapt to higher elevations and warmer and dryer climates, as well as colder areas. The secret is lots of water and sunshine. The common name for these trees is California Redwood or Coastal Redwood. They can live for 2,000 years or more in ideal conditions. This species includes the tallest trees on Earth, reaching up to 375 feet in height.
You are purchasing a large redwood tree plug, two to three years old. These stand about 21 inches measured from the bottom of the plug, which is about 2 inches in diameter. We recommend that you pot these in 1-gallon pots on arrival.
The first picture shows a typical plug. The second picture shows the plants in our greenhouse. The third picture shows a Sequoia grove.
You can regulate the speed of growth by varying the light — the lower the light, the slower the growth. But do keep them moist, as redwoods like lots of water. We think these can be grown outdoors successfully from zones 5 through 9 if proper care is given.
We recommend growing these as pot plants for up to a year, gradually increasing the size of the pot. Plant in the ground in the spring of 2015. Be sure to allow for room to grow when selecting a location, and be sure to provide plenty of water in dry conditions.
Or you can grow these as container plants by pruning them back if they threaten to get too big.
These trees were tissue cultured from large redwoods that showed superior growth, shape, adaptation to varying climatic regions, limb structure, height and diameter.
A mature tree is said to produce nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year. Young redwoods use sunlight so efficiently (3-4 times more than pines) that they can grow even in deep shade.

Our Bonsai Training Wire is the finest quality, solid enameled copper. Every inch of wire is heat annealed to the perfect softness for bonsai purposes and clear enamel coated for longevity. More durable than aluminum, yet heat softened for the delicate bonsai. You have total 75 feet of 3 different size wire to train many Bonsai trees.
The use of Bonsai wiring techniques permits us to train trees along almost any lines. The thinnest wire that will hold a branch in the desired position, is the right diameter of wire to use. The wire should be started at the soil level and wrapped around the trunk of the tree to the tip of the limb. Always wind the wire in the direction the branch is bent. Make sure you wrap the wire loose enough to allow each branch to grow. Can be used for all varieties of plant shaping
