Known in California as the redwood tree, Giant sequoias can grow to become the largest trees on earth. An extremely fast growing evergreen tree, it can put on a significant amount of height and diameter every year if given good growing conditions. This tree is cold hardy up to zone 5 and can withstand cold winters under heavy snow. Avoid planting in a dry area, as giant sequoias need a sizeable amount of water during the growing season and can die if the roots dry out. Ensure to leave adequate space for eventual growth of a very large tree.
Germination: Soak the seeds in water for 24h and cold stratify for 1-2 weeks. Plant into a moist soil substrate and be careful not to let the seedlings dry out. For best germination, use a plastic bag with moist paper towel and remove seeds when root begins to show.
