Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘WB’

Giant Redwood

The cultivar ‘Witches’ Broom’ is a slow-growing, globose selection of Sequoiadendron found as a witches’ broom in Portland, Oregon. Listed by Stanley & Sons Nursery in Oregon, USA, in 2009, this cultivar features small but otherwise typical foliage and reaches a height and width of 1.5 m in ten years (Auders & Spicer 2012). Its compact, rounded form and slow growth rate make ‘Witches’ Broom’ an attractive choice for small gardens, rock gardens, or containers where a diminutive, sculptural conifer is desired.
