Coast Redwood Sequoia sempervirens 20+ fresh seeds

Oreshka seeds
Sequoia evergreen (Latin: Sequoia sempervirens) is a coniferous tree of the Cypress family with a straight trunk.

One of the largest trees in the world.

It is characterized by rapid growth and durability-it lives up to 2 thousand years, while maintaining the ability to renew growth up to 500-600 years.

The height is more than 100 m with a trunk diameter of 6-9 m.

The bark on the lower, oldest part of the trunk is red-brown (in America, the color of the Redwood bark is called mahogany), with deep cracks and peels off long longitudinal fibers.

The thickness of the bark reaches 70 cm.

This fact, together with the ability to produce shoots and shoots from dormant buds until old age, helps the Sequoia to survive, despite frequent devastating forest fires.

Young shoots are green and round, with age they turn brown and become furrowed.

There are two types of shoots on redwoods.

Some so-called conducting shoots grow from year to year, forming a narrow-conic crown of the tree.

Other, feathery shoots live 5-7 years, and then fall off.

Needles pointed, linear-lanceolate, dark green above, shiny, paler below, with two stripes of stomata on the sides of the keel passing in the middle.

At the ends of the falling pinnate shoots are cones that seem very small on the scale of this tree — their length is 1.5-2 cm.

Mature cones are red-brown or black-brown in color, consist of 20-25 corymbose scales and sit on a short petiole, along with which (and sometimes with the entire twig) the seeds fall.

Ripen in the first year.

Use for decorative purposes.
It is an extremely valuable decorative tree both for single and group plantings, and for the formation of more extensive and closed plantings.

It can also be successfully used in protective strips of subtropical areas.

It grows well in humid areas and suffers from dryness.

Withstands short-term frosts up to -10°C.
