Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum’
Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum’ is the classic, irregular weeping giant sequoia. No two plants are alike, creating both delight and consternation for those who wish to grow it. While a plant's central leader it quite dominant and strong, it tends to meander growing in all sorts of odd directions. Branching is strictly pendulous and foliage is species-typical gray-green in color. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 4 m tall with a spread that cannot be easily forecast. This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in 1863 at Lalande Nursery, Nantes France. Élie-Abel Carrière described it and first published its cultivar name in 1867 in Traité Général des Conifères. Our tree was planted in 2013.
