Sequoia sempervirens 'Albospica'
Albospica Coastal Redwood
Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Compact, new growth is white. Grows about 2 ft per year.
- Hardy to USDA Zone 7 Some suggest that it should be sheared into a globe shape.
- Albospica: albo, white; spica, spike, a reference to the white shoot tips.
- Some confusion as to whether the cultivars 'Adpressa' and 'Albospica' are actually different.
