The Giant Coastal Redwood is one of the most unique and amazing trees in the world, and has become very popular in cultivation worldwide. Although the species grows in a very limited range naturally, it grows in a very large number of conditions and survives in most environments as long as summer water is available. However, these trees are actually far more drought resistant than most people think. At our nursery in Medford, Oregon where average rainfall is about 19 inches with less than 3 of those occurring between June and September (when the average high is in the 90's with 100+ degrees being common, all with very low humidity (10-20% is the most common) we grow Coast Redwoods in the full sun with them being watered only twice each summer. Any landscape with summer watering will have enough moisture to grow this tree. Additionally, there are no major pests or diseases that might attack your tree and make it look sick and yellow. They are also more cold tolerant than most people think - our trees survived -5 degrees for two days straight without even leaf damage.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Coast Redwood is its generation ability. In general, conifers can produce new growth only from existing buds - branches that are cut off will leave a permanently bare trunk, trees cut to the ground will yield a dead stump. Redwoods can produce new buds from old growth along the trunk or from the stump, which has actually been useful to us for maintaining low branching. Because other conifers can't regenerate low branches, pruning them causes dead spots on hedges. This is very true for Arborvitae, which deer tend to eat during the winter. In hard years they eat all the bottom branches, leaving a permanently bare trunk. We love using Redwoods for hedges because they can be continually topped and pruned and will stay dense and full. Additionally, the roots can regenerate and will handle disturbance such as digging or being buried deeper far better than most other trees. In the wild they are well adapted to growing in flood plains where rivers can deposit large amounts of silt over their roots.

Because they can regenerate growth, large trees will often grow with in clumps of multiple giant trunks. This creates amazing stands of redwoods in groves, and we personally prefer this look to single trunks. To force a single trunk, cut the smaller trunks in the winter so the plant focuses its growth on a single trunk.

Coast Redwoods are known for their incredible shade tolerance, and will grow straight and fast even in deep shade. They are one of our favorite conifers and is the first conifer we started propagating (again unlike many other conifers, Coast Redwoods can be propagated by stem cuttings). When given space and time, they will grow quite large, but they can also be pruned to a hedge or even kept as a bonsai. However, because of their fast growth and immense potential size, we don't recommend planting these in tight residential settings near buildings or property borders.

The Giant Coastal Redwood is the world's tallest tree, with some of the tallest growing to more than 300 feet high with trunks 30 feet in diameter! Redwoods are famous for their fast growth of up to seven or eight feet per year, massive sizes, and incredibly rot resistant wood. The tree's heartwood takes on a red color over time as decay resistant chemicals accumulate in the wood, which is fairly light and even grained. The wood is very strong and the huge demand for the incredible wood has left only very small populations of Redwoods unlogged. The species now only occupies a few percent of its original range and has been listed as an endangered tree. Luckily, a mature tree can produce 5-8 million seeds per year and although the seeds tend to have low viability, plenty of seedlings can be grown each year for reforestation.

How Your Plants Are Packaged And Shipped


Most plants are shipped wrapped in newspaper, then moistened. Large bundles of plants can be shipped in a single long box.
Some plants, usually bamboo, are shipped in their container while others have their roots washed of soil and wrapped in damp paper and plastic. Most plant varieties can be shipped year-round, but sometimes certain plant species or large sizes do best when shipped dormant. You can order these to reserve yours during the summer and then they will be shipped in November when they are ready to go.

Your plants are placed in tight fitting boxes and strapped to the box so they don't move around and sustain damage. These are 3' tall Coast Redwoods.

Here's Why You Get The Best Plants From Us

Outdoor Grown Plants Are Tough
These plants have been grown outside and are far tougher than greenhouse-grown plants, which is the typical growing method of many other online sellers. When plants spend their live outsides they are already used to extreme temperature, humidity, and light fluctuations and have been hardened off against these conditions from day one. Tough plants are much better prepared for planting out and will perform far better in your landscape.

No Risk Ordering
Your plants are fully guaranteed to arrive safely or they will be replaced, no hassles. Just send us an email at info@lebeaubamboo.com for easy plant help. They are also guaranteed to be fully up to size - we only ship plants that have fully filled out their container. Often, online sellers ship plants that are 3.5 inch or quart sized but the most common size plants we ship are twice as big, fully filling out one gallon containers.

Year Round Shipping
By growing in containers rather than the field, shipping of one and two gallon plants is available within 1-3 days of ordering all year long for most plant varieties. Plus, container growing has the added benefit of low root disturbance, especially compared to typical bare root plants, and ensures much faster establishment in your landscape. Holding your order and shipping dormant in the spring or fall is also available which offers reduced shipping rates and allows for shipping of large two and five gallon plants up to 60 inches tall.
