Metasequoia Dawn Redwood Bonsai Trees
Metasequoia Dawn Redwood Bonsai Trees are an ancient species of tree, dating back many millions of years. Thought to be extinct, it was found growing in a small grove in China in the middle of the last century. From these few trees, it has been cultivated and is now widespread throughout the world.
In the wild, it is a strongly growing, upright tree capable of reaching great heights. As bonsai, they are frequently found in groups, making use of the strongly upright growth.
