Aptos Blue Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens ‘Aptos Blue’)

Aptos Blue Coast Redwood

Redwood. The name conjures up images of massive 300-foot tall trees that are so big you can drive a car through the trunk, which is certainly not the goal of the modern home garden. This is especially true considering our shrinking garden spaces.

These trees look fantastic in small groups or groves and as hedge-rows. They love moisture so they are perfect trees for well-watered urban lawns. They grow equally well in full sun or part shade and attract native birds and butterflies, but not the local deer population.

As the tree grows, the branches begin to bow down just slightly giving it a pretty ‘weeping’ effect.

Use this beauty as a specimen tree or along a property edge. Consider Aptos Blue Coast redwood a true investment. Read up on how redwoods fare in your area. Pick the best spot in your landscape. Give it a little love. Stand back and marvel that your redwood will be enjoyed for generations to come!
