I have 3.

They are about 3 weeks ahead of last year in bud break.

'Ogon' about half way extended.

'Miss Grace all they way.

'North Light' half in... broken bud with some leaf extension.



'Ogon' Grew 3 ft. last year. Will burn first year in my Kansas Zone 5. Nothing to worry about. It will bounce right back next year with no burn. Good to -20. Yellow color holds all summer.

RE: Metasequoia glyptostroboides

I agree, they look great.


RE: Metasequoia glyptostroboides

Nice specimens Dave.
Please rename 'North Light' into 'Schirrmann's Nordlicht' which is the original name given to this conifer.
It was found as a witches' broom on a 'White Spot' by my German friend Winfried Schirrmann.

'Schirrmann's Nordlicht' looks great...I love those stout branches on that dwarf plant.
