Unsual Coast redwood sappling

Post by L.Danton » Sat Feb 21, 2015 8:30 am

I have just subscribed to ENTS I have been following for a few years.
My hobby is to grow seeds of iconic species in paris and bring the trees to the Country to plant them in a more appropriate place as soon as they get big enough.
Amont my seedlings I have seeds of coast redwoods of course but, among the 7 sapplings i got, one is clearly very different from the others.
The first year it has grown just one inch, it was the Black Sheep... The second year, it became clear That it was healthy but different and least year it has grown about 2 feet and as you can see, the leaves are thicker and darker than normal. I dont think it is wheeping cause the end of branches are clearly pointing upward.
i dont Know if anyone has ever seen such a cultivar (i can call it so i think) but i would be intersting to have the point of view of the experts.

Cheers

Laurent

To follow my formers posts, here is a picture of this particular Redwood.
This spring it sprout very strong shoots, is very dark green and seems
much more hardy than the other ones.
I can confirm it is weeping.
The trunk is much more thick Than the normal sapplings of the same age.
If You have experienced such caracteristics on redwood dont hesitate to share it with me
