Fast-Growing Tree, Even in Wet Soil

Why Dawn Redwood Trees?

Year-round interest, versatility, and easy growth (even in wet soil) are just a click away with the Dawn Redwood Tree. Not only does this tree deliver good looks almost anywhere, but it also couldn't be easier to plant and grow.

Unlike similar varieties, standing water is no problem for the Dawn Redwood. If you have low areas in your landscape that puddle after heavy rains, plant the Dawn. Most trees can't survive in this type of environment, but this tree loves it and soaks it all in to grow to amazing heights of up to 50 feet!

You'll get amazing foliage and color without any hassle. The Dawn Redwood's beautiful, fern-like foliage develops in the spring, adding perfect green color to your landscape that thrives through the summer season. The majestic, fast-growing tree transitions in the fall to a gentle gold in homage to autumn.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your 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 Dawn 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 once a week for the first couple of years.

dawn redwood

So far, so good. Leaves are turning brown. I understand even though a "redwood", the species is deciduous. Have been watering frequently even though I has turned quite cold here in NE Ohio. Spring will be the true test of whether it survives the winter here.

Dawn redwood

Arrived safe and sound. No problems with delivery or boxing. Soil was very soft and a bit loose so took some care when securing in hole.

Love my formerly little Dawn Redwood

Tree arrived healthy along with a couple tulip poplars. Planted the dawn redwood out in the big front yard because we didn't have any shade trees out there. Planted it in fall of 2020. In spring of 2021 we got a very late snow/freeze, and all the leaves that had just budded out fell off. I was so sad, but about a week later small buds reformed, and by June it was covered in leaves again. It grew fast. It was around 5' when I planted it, two summers later, it's over nine foot tall and very full. Beautiful. Glad I purchased it, and my tulips are doing very well too as are some river birches I planted a year later.
