Californian Redwood

Sequoia sempervirens

Walking between the vast cathedral like pillars of the world’s most gigantic trees used to require a special trip to California. Not so today as we have 2 amazing (almost) mature forests planted in the 1930s in Victoria at Warburton and Beech Forest. These evergreen giant redwoods, with deep-green soft, aromatic foliage, provide a truly humbling and awe-inspiring experience for those walking beneath them. Despite their towering presence, with a canopy narrower than an oak, they can be grown in restricted spaces.

Californian Redwood

The experience of walking under these giants of the plant world is both humbling and inspiring. A feature of Californian forests, but you don’t have to travel to the U.S. to experience the vast cathedral-like pillars of the world’s most gigantic tree. Victoria has two amazing (almost) mature forests, planted in the 1930s at Warburton and Beech Forest in the Otway Ranges. The soft aromatic foliage grows rapidly; up to 2 metres per year in well-watered fertile soils. Californian Redwoods can be grown in large gardens as their canopy is narrower than that of an oak. Very fast growth rate.

How to grow

Plant in full sun or part shade in moist, well-watered fertile soil. Very fast growth rate, up to 2m per year. Plant in multiples for a dense, awe-inspiring forest experience.
