Redwood Care

Do you mean dawn redwood, Metasequoia glyptostroboides, or coast redwood, Sequoia sempervirens? confused Their winter care would be quite different.

Dawn Redwoods , Metasequoia glyptostroboides, are deciduous conifers, like larch and bald cypress. They are very cold hardy and should do fine in an unheated garage over the winter.

Dawn Redwood should be kept outdoors in winter. This is a deciduous species. They are very hardy but will suffer indoors. If you are growing the tree in a pot mulch heavily around the pot and make sure it gets a little water once in a while but do not over water during this dormant period. Heavy snow will not hurt the tree.
