Dawn Redwood, Autumn

The Dawn Redwood has an intriguing story.
We first saw one in the Missouri Botanical Garden years ago when we lived in the St Louis area and were members. We get back so infrequently now to not make membership worthwhile. Among the many ideas for landscaping and plants we brought south with us was this plant. It is a fine specimen and displays amazing Fall colors almost glowing in the autumn sun. We have it close to the pond but the roots are just barely in range at its current 14 or so feet.
