Set plants 25 feet apart to allow for ultimate spread. Choose a location in full sun and a deep, well drained, slightly acid, moist soil; the Dawn Redwood is intolerant of lime. Avoid location where early fall or late spring frosts are likely to occur, as these times are when plants grow considerably. They make one of the most beautiful of all lawn specimens.
Remarkably easy to care for, hardy, and tolerant of pollution. It is unlikely that pruning will be necessary, for plants naturally assume an attractive, orderly habit. Easily transplanted. Should be well watered during times of drought.
