This selection of the Giant sequoia was chosen for its blue-green foliage and its pyramidal growth habit. The tree can be up to 16 feet tall and 5-6 ft wide in 10 years, but will continue to grow, becoming a spectacular specimen over time. Described way back in 1860 by Christoph Friedrich Otto in Germany. Hardy to zone 7. This selection is similar to the cultivar 'Hazel Smith', however 'Hazel Smith' grows bigger, and is hardier.
