Dawn Redwood Bonsai
Botanical name: Metasequoia
Dawn Redwood really put on a show! They are very fast growers, develop large trunks and back bud extremely well. Pruning is a must so they are great for practicing on. They love water so it makes it hard to overwater. They are a perfect deciduous tree for a beginner. One of the easiest trees out there to grow.
Hardy Bonsai material needs to be wintered over in a protected cold spot so that they can go through their natural dormancy period. Inside an unheated garage, cold frame, or bury in the ground with good insulation for the roots.
