Known in California as the redwood tree, or Séquoia géant in French, 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.
