Sequoiadendron giganteum BLUE ICEBERG

Blue Iceberg, a relatively popular slow-growing selection, was raised from seed in 1989 by Herbert Rihacek in Eichgraben, Austria. It exhibits a growth rate of approximately 5–10 cm per year and features blue-grey foliage throughout the growing season, which transitions to green during the winter months (Dendrologie Online 2006; Auders & Spicer 2012).
