Coast Redwood ‘Loma Prieta Spike’

Sequoia sempervirens


Sequoia sempervirens ‘Loma Prieta Spike’ is a strongly growing, robust, upright weeping selection of coast redwood with a dominant central leader and cloaked (weeping) lateral branching. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 20 feet (6 m) tall and 6 feet (2 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 2 feet (60 cm) or more. While superficially similar to the species this conifer has less of a meandering growth habit; it grows straight skyward, creating stunning exclamation point in the landscape.
