Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum Verum’

Giant Redwood

“Pendulum Novum” is an obscure cultivar name that refers to a form of Sequoiadendron giganteum raised around 1870 by Little & Ballantyne, a nursery based in the United Kingdom. However, according to Auders & Spicer (2012), this cultivar is probably no longer in cultivation.

The scarcity of information about “Pendulum Novum” suggests that it may have been a limited selection or one that failed to gain widespread popularity or distribution. The loss of this cultivar could be attributed to various factors, such as the challenges of propagation, lack of commercial demand, or the superiority of other pendulous forms that emerged later.
