Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Shorty’s Blue’

Giant Redwood

‘Shorty’s Blue’ is a Sequoiadendron cultivar raised from seed in the USA before 2010. It features an upright, narrow growth habit and attractive, rich blue foliage. With moderate vigor, ‘Shorty’s Blue’ can reach 3 m in height and 1.2 m in width within ten years (Auders & Spicer 2012). Its compact form and striking blue foliage make it a desirable choice for gardens and landscapes where a colorful, vertical accent is desired.
