Coast Redwood ‘Adpressa’ / ‘Albospica’ – Tree Form (3L)

Sequoia sempervirens


‘Albospica’ is the ‘tree phase’ of the Sequoia sempervirens cultivar ‘Adpressa’.

Coast Redwood ‘Adpressa’ is a unique and captivating cultivar of Sequoia sempervirens. It is distinguished by its dense and compact growth, displaying lush green and creamy white, tightly-held needles that adds an elegant touch to any landscape.

Ideal for urban gardens or smaller spaces, this variety retains the majestic qualities of its parent species while remaining well-suited to limited areas.

If left unattended, it will form a broadly conical, rather open tree that will be 4 to 6 feet (1.5 – 2m) tall after 10 years. However, if subjected to regular shearing and occasional, ‘Adpressa’ will be a fairly tight, bright white ball.We recommend keeping these staked if you want to keep the trunk straight.

Supplied in tree form with a single trunk which is commonly referred to as ‘Albospica’ as opposed to the bush form.
