Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Miss Grace' photo gallery

dcsteg(5 Shawnee, KS.)July 11, 2011

Small deciduous conifer with gracefully weeping branches that could reach 10' tall by 3' wide if staked. Refined gray-green foliage in summer, very strong orange in autumn. Originally discovered in Japan as 'Golden Ogi', then later brought to Europe and renamed by horticulturist, Peter Zweinburg. Like most Redwoods 'Miss Grace prefers full sun, and moist, well drained soil. Zone 5-9.

Just guessing, correct cultivar name...'Golden Ogi'.

Edwin...what say you.

Nice Dave. Always amazed by how well kept your beds are.

What do you think of it in the winter? Is the tunk buttressing?

Dave, your info about the 'Golden Ogi' is about the Metasequoia glypt. 'Ogon', not about the 'Miss Grace'.

'Miss Grace' was found by Talon Buchholz from the Buchholz & Buchholz Nursery.
I heard it's first name was 'Bonsai' which was later renamed in 'Miss Grace'.

Dave, that info is incorrect.
Talon Buchholz found it and gave it the name 'Miss Grace' and also under this name we have it here in The Netherlands.

'Golden Ogi' is a fantasy name for 'Ogon' which came from Japan to The Netherlands via Pieter Zwijnenburg.
He was the one who renamed it in 'Goldrush' which was iligitimate ofcourse.
The very bad thing was that he received a golden medal for this new introduction as 'Goldrush' the same year at the Plantarium International Trading Show.

You're welcome Dave.

I took this pic last Summer during the British- and Dutch conifer societies field trip in Belgium and France at Mr. A. Bultinck's Garden.
In the past he owned Belgium's best conifer nursery.
The name of that nursery was "De Ceder" ("The Cedar")

Sugi, this cultivar is a beauty indeed.
The one at the Trompenburg Arboretum is grafted on a low standerd which gives another view as it was grafted as a low graft.
I prefer the low graft with steaking it's leader for a couple of years so a weeping form will arise...

Guys, does the foilage take on more of a blue hue vs. just green of the species?

Certainly a beautiful cultivar! I especially like how you've trained yours in the photo at the top of the thread, Dave - the trunk's "curve of beauty" form goes really well with the drooping branches.

Here are two pictures of my new miss grace. One in July at the nursery and second in the ground now late November. My mistake was standing it up in the truck for transportation. I lost most of the needles to admire for the rest of fall. Oops.
