Sequoia sempervirens ‘Xeno’

Coast Redwood

‘Xeno’ is a distinctive cultivar of Sequoia sempervirens (Coast Redwood) that offers a unique combination of features. It is characterised by its striking, slightly blue foliage, which sets it apart from the typical green of the species. ‘Xeno’ exhibits a compact, columnar growth habit, making it suitable for both small and large garden landscapes.

This cultivar also features smaller, more compact needles compared to those of the original species. The blue tint to the foliage and the compact growth habit of ‘Xeno’ offer an interesting alternative to the typical Coast Redwood, potentially allowing this iconic species to be used in a wider range of landscape settings. Its neat appearance and adaptable size make it particularly valuable for formal or space-limited garden designs, offering versatility in various garden sizes and styles.
