Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘Hamlet’s Broom’

Dawn Redwood

‘Hamlet’s Broom’ is a rare and unique cultivar of Metasequoia glyptostroboides, known for being one of the few truly extreme dwarf forms of the species. This cultivar was propagated from a witches’ broom discovered in Denmark before 2005 (Auders & Spicer 2012).

Due to its highly specialized nature, ‘Hamlet’s Broom’ likely has limited availability and is primarily circulated among specialist growers.
