Sequoia sempervirens is the sole living species of the genus Sequoia in the cypress family Cupressaceae (formerly treated in Taxodiaceae). Common names include coast redwood, coastal redwood and California redwood. It is an evergreen, long-lived, monoecious tree living 1,200–1,800 years or more. This species includes the tallest living trees on Earth, reaching up to 379 feet (115.5 m) in height (without the roots) and up to 29.2 feet (8.9 m) in diameter at breast height (dbh). These trees are also among the oldest living things on Earth. Before commercial logging and clearing began by the 1850s, this massive tree occurred naturally in an estimated 2,100,000 acres (850,000 ha) along much of coastal California (excluding southern California where rainfall is not sufficient) and the south-western corner of coastal Oregon within the United States.

The name sequoia sometimes refers to the subfamily Sequoioideae, which includes S. sempervirens along with Sequoiadendron (giant sequoia) and Metasequoia (dawn redwood).

    Germination; Our Sequoia seeds are chilled prior to dispatch. There is no need to cold stratify but do plant the seeds as soon as they arrive. Fill small pots with compost mixed with 10% vermiculite and 10% sand. Sow 10mm deep. Keep the compost quite damp. Ideal temp. 21°C. Germination should take 1-3 months. Beware of damping off. Once germination occurs do not keep the soil so moist. If germination does not occur cold stratify. Move to 4°C. for 2-4 weeks then return to warmth. Germination can be erratic and of low %, this is normal. Once seedlings are large enough to handle move to clay pots filled with 8:1:1 soil, gravel, sand mixture. Fill bottom of pot with gravel then add potting mixture. Remove seedling very carefully from original pot and plant into clay pot. Water well. Expose seedling gradually to sun over the course of a month. Water weekly . Good air circulation is required.

    Growing; Prefers moderately fertile, moist well-drained soil in full sun to dappled shade. Keep seedlings under glass for the first winter. Do not over water seedlings. By 18 months the trees may be placed outside in all weathers. Pot on as needed. Plant into the ground when too large to pot. Choose the site carefully.
