Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Cannibal’

Giant Redwood

This cultivar, grown from seed by Pieter Zwijnenburg Jr. in the Netherlands before 2000, develops slowly into an open, sparsely branched plant, with a growth rate of approximately 15 cm per year (Dendrologie Online 2006). The branches are positioned further apart on the stem than is typical for the species, and reportedly do not branch beyond the second order (Auders & Spicer 2012).
