A gorgeous tree that naturally grows very dense foliage in a pyramidal/conical form without any pruning. Closely related to the Giant Coast Redwood, this Sierra Redwood grows further inland in California in the Sierra mountains. There are very few trees growing in the wild, in fact the National Park Service has an actual count of every known tree in its range. However, this species doesn't require very many trees to attract attention as some of those at the Giant Sequoia National Park are nearly 3,000 years old and stand around 280 feet tall, with trunk diameters of over 30 feet. 30 feet is more than it sounds, by the way - that diameter can be matched by five people six feet tall laying head to feet in a line!

Luckily, this fantastic tree can be grown in medium sized landscapes because, although it will always be a large tree, it doesn't reach excessive sizes until several hundred years. Just be careful not to plant this tree right against buildings or power lines that will cause headaches a generation or two from now. Here in the Rogue Valley, this is a very common tree seen in various parks, roadways, and home gardens (in fact there is an excellent 100' tall specimen across the street from our nursery) and is popular because of its strong wood, fast growth and large trunk diameter.

Another difference between the Giant Sequoia and the Coast Redwood is that the Giant Sequoia is far more drought tolerant (being native to inland Northern California, it has to be!). The first time I ever realized that this species was more drought tolerant that I originally thought was finding a row planted near a forest access pull off in the woods in Union Creek, Oregon. The trees are about 40 feet tall and are growing happily with no summer irrigation in a climate where temperatures often near 100 degrees with very low humidity and infrequent to non-existent summer rainfall. Years later, a far more impressive testament to the Giant Sequoia's drought tolerant was found growing alongside a logging road in the hills above the Applegate River. It appears that a Sequoia was planted with Douglas Fir after a clear cut - perhaps an errant seed got into the wrong bed at the Forest Service seed nursery and the seedling was put there by planting crews. But it grows happily on a steep hillside in the full sun in conditions far drier than in Union Creek. So if this tree grows here, it is at least as drought tolerant as Douglas Fir and can be planted in very dry landscapes.

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.
