Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘Green Mantle’

Dawn Redwood

‘Green Mantle’ is a cultivar of Metasequoia glyptostroboides that was raised in the UK before 1990. It is known for its reportedly greener leaves compared to the typical forms of the species. However, despite sharing this characteristic with the more well-known cultivar ‘Emerald Feathers’, ‘Green Mantle’ has never achieved the same level of popularity or distribution (Auders & Spicer 2012).
