A curious form of Giant Redwood with a unique and quirky personality that is quite unlike any other specimen tree! Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum’ is a slow-growing evergreen conifer that forms a tall, narrow pillar. The vigorous, upright trunk carries tightly pendulous branches clothed in mane-like, grey-green foliage. Mature specimens have the appearance of strange, shaggy columns, often leaning over and twisting into ghostly shapes. No two specimens are alike – branches bob and weave, giving the tree a sense of movement and a strong personality that may look a little spooky at night! Like other redwoods, the reddish-brown, fibrous bark becomes spongey with age.

Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘Pendulum’ makes an intriguing specimen as a stand-alone tree. It can also be planted into avenues, its weeping branches creating a cathedral effect of soaring columns shrouded in drape-like foliage. This is probably a love or hate plant, but there’s no denying that this extraordinary living sculpture makes a unique stamp on the garden landscape that cannot fail to be noticed. Height: 10m+ (32ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Sequoiadendron trees in fertile, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or lightly dappled shade. Wellingtonia is less tolerant of shade than other redwoods and thefoliage may become discoloured where light levels are reduced.
Feed and water Wellingtonia regularly until fully established. Once established, Sequoiadendron trees require virtually no maintenance.
