Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Von Martin' / Von Martin giant sequoia

Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Von Martin' is a dwarf, conical selection of giant sequoia with dense, uniform branching and uniquely colored seafoam-green foliage. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 40 inches (1 m) tall and 24 inches (60 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 3 to 4 inches (7.5 - 10 cm), about 1-quarter the growth rate of the typical species.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the 1990s. Despite being a choice selection, little is known of its origin, other than it's thought to have come from The Netherlands.
