Product Description

A Dwarf Redwood + Radiant Fall Foliage

Why Amber Glow™ Redwood Trees?

Redwoods are awe-inspiring, pre-historic trees, but they’re often too big to grow in a yard. The Amber Glow™ Redwood? It breaks the mold. With the Amberglow, you can enjoy the ancient history and magnificence of the Redwood in a compact size.

The Amber Glow™ is a variety of the Dawn Redwood, which is a deciduous tree with needled foliage. In other words, your tree will give you ornamental value in spring, summer and fall! The bright green foliage is tipped with burgundy during the spring and summer for eye-catching interest that's second to none.

Fall brings attractive orange color as you've never seen. Merging good looks and carefree growth, the Redwood thrives almost anywhere with ease. Disease-free, fast-growing and highly adaptable, your tree will easily grow without a fuss. Plus, its pyramidal shade means you won't have to deal with pruning either.

The best part? This variety was specifically developed to thrive in full sun without burning - so you'll get even more versatility from your new Redwood Tree.

Why is Better

It was once thought that Dawn Redwoods were extinct. When these unique redwoods with stunning fall foliage were discovered to still be thriving in China, they became prized.

For this reason, it's difficult to find the Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree at your local nurseries or big-box. But when you order your Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree from Fast Growing Trees, you get its rare, unique color and healthier roots plus better branching and long-term success.

Don’t miss out on your chance to grow a well-loved and sought-after tree. Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Amber Glow Redwood in well-draining soil and in a spot that receives full sun. Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There's no need to amend the soil, but do add a thick layer of mulch around the base to retain moisture.

2. Watering: Make sure your Amber Glow Redwood receives one inch of water each week, and more if you live in a dry, drought-prone area. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated, but you'll likely need to water the establishing tree.

Gorgeous fall color!

I ordered one of these, and loved it so much I now have a total of three. I am in NE Ohio after having lived in CA for over 40 years, so a Redwood that I can have here in Ohio to remind me of CA is great. This tree has only been in the ground not quite a month, and all three are doing really well. This one is ahead of the other two as far as color goes. The pic doesn't do it justice; it is almost iridescent in color and gets prettier every day. Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Review

Fair price

It was packaged well. Overall a nice plant although there was some discoloration. I think that was due to the 2-day delay that FedEx had in delivering this plant. The root collar was buried in the pot, but that is common with most. I ordered the 5-6 foot specimen Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Review

Amberglow Redwood

I love this tree! It arrived healthy looking and has stayed that way after planting. It looks amazing in my front yard and was just the tree I was looking for! Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Review

Very nice, well branched tree

Arrived in excellent condition and packaged very well. Soil was still damp. Extremely impressed with the extensive branching and color of the foliage. As the picture shows, the top branches are showing the beautiful golden colored foliage this variety is known for. Lovely red trunk and limb bark as well. Cannot wait to see this beauty in the fall when it turns fire orange. Have ordered plants and trees from other well known mail order and online websites, but first time ordering from this company. Very impressed. Will likely be ordering more products from this site in the future. Get on line and get you one of these trees. Somewhat hard to find online, and you’ll probably never see one at your local nursery or box store garden center. Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Review

Easy! Tree is beautiful!

I ordered 2 trees to test quality before placing a much larger order to block my annoying neighbor. Both trees are gorgeous and were packaged very well. They arrived moist and happy. The Amberflow Redwood is a beauty! Nice and tall already--I bought the largest possible size (5-6ft). Definitely will buy again. Amber Glow™ Redwood Tree Review
