Sequoia sempervirens ‘Elegans’

Coast Redwood

‘Elegans’ is a cultivar name of Sequoia sempervirens that appears in the 1874 catalog of the Scottish nursery Peter Lawson & Son. However, no further information about the characteristics or distinguishing features of this cultivar was provided (Auders & Spicer 2012).

The absence of information about ‘Elegans’ in contemporary literature also raises questions about its continued existence in cultivation. It is possible that this cultivar has been lost over time.
