A fast 50' evergreen tree. Its flowers are white with yellow centers and appear spring-summer. Native to Ca. Islands. Its conifer shape looks like a redwood until you look close. It needs good drainage and water to bring its rainfall to above 15". It's hardy to about 20-22 degrees, with no burn, ours has recovered from 6-8 but it froze to the trunk. It is possible it is tolerant to lower temperatures if the plant was a little older. The one that survived the 6-8 was only 8' tall. A fine tree for large lawn or patio, very ornamental and woodsy looking. Protect from the deer for the first 5 years. It can handle the second zone on the seashore. this is the area where the wind doesn't take the wave spray onto the plants. This area may be as far back as 1/2 mile if the waves are high and the wind bad.
