Dawn redwood was believed to be extinct for centuries. Until first specimen were brought from China in 1941 and propagated throughout the world.

GOLDRUSH is a trade name for a new variety patented as Ogon when it was brought from Japan in 1993, by a Dutch horticulturist Peter Zweinburg. It is a rare, deciduous conifer with bright golden-yellow or yellowish green, opposite, flat, soft needles that fade to coppery-red in the autumn. The bark is fibred, red to light brown. Regular pruning or trimming of young plants in early spring will result in beautiful and bushy plants already from early age.

It grows medium fast, making horizontal branches along the main stem when young, and later forming a neat and regular pyramidal shape. It needs humus-rich, moist soil, some sources even recommend boggy soil. We have been growing it here in partly water-logged location and it is doing fine. Fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
