Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Viride’

Giant Redwood

‘Viride’ is a Sequoiadendron cultivar raised in Switzerland and introduced to the trade by the Minier Nurseries in France in 2000. It features an upright growth habit and distinctive new growth that emerges white, quickly turning pale green. However, Auders & Spicer (2012) note that the cultivar name in Latin form is probably invalid. Despite this, ‘Viride’ remains an attractive choice for gardens and landscapes where a unique foliage color and upright form are desired.
