Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘Miss Grace’ is the first Metasequoia cultivar with strongly weeping branches. This gorgeous plant makes a superb living sculpture when it is staked up so the branches drape freely. The tree’s small needles and thin branches resemble those of the species Taxodium, but with opposite, not alternate, buds and needles. When the deciduous conifer drops its foliage, the peeling bark and swooping framework supply winter interest.
Garden Size: Varies with culture
Deciduous conifer, more or less ground sprawling, but if staked, a small tree, maybe 10 ft and 3 ft wide ( 3 × 0.9 m) in 10 years, with weeping branches.
