A rare selection, Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Royal Air' has an upright, pyramidal habit growing to be a slender, small tree in time. The leaves are bronze-green in spring when they emerge turning bright green later in the year and bronze in autumn before they fall. Eventually a sizable tree.

Although lovely, this selection seems more susceptible to late frost than some of the other Metasequoia growing here and would prefer a sunny sheltered, west facing position.


  • Position: Full sun or partial shade.
  • Soil: Moist, fertile soil. Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Royal Air' particularly enjoys damp or wet sites.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Small to medium sized tree with a narrow, compact, conical habit.
    • Height: 10 - 15 m (32 - 50 ft).
    • Spread: 4 m (13 ft).
  • Notes: As this is a new introduction, the above eventual sizes are an estimate based on a nine year old specimen of Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Royal Air' growing in our arboretum.
