If you’re wondering what the seeds were in your swag bag, then we can help you grow those too!

Those tiny seeds will grow into mighty Dawn Redwood trees. They have green, needle-like leaves similar to evergreens. The feather-like green foliage turns to a reddish-orange in the fall, making Dawn Redwoods an excellent ornamental tree for your home landscape. Dawn Redwoods are rarely found growing in nature, and will add that unusual touch to your property that will set it above the rest – much like a film by Tree9!

Keep in mind when planting that this is a shade tree, featuring a spreading canopy capable of blocking sunlight. Dawn Redwoods grow at a fast rate, with height increases of more than 24″ per year. At maturity it may reach a height of 70–100′ and a spread of around 25′. Full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.

To germinate the seeds:

  1. Plant seeds shallowly in a cardboard or peat pot using clean potting soil. Plant shallowly because the seeds need light in order to germinate.
  2. Place the pot in a plastic bag and seal it with a rubber band.
  3. Keep MOIST in a cool area with indirect light, no sun. Seeds must not become dry during the germination period but do not over-water.
  4. When the tree is a few inches tall plant the pot and all in a larger container with more potting soil. Don’t overwater but keep the tops misted.
