An exceptionally unusual selection of giant redwood with stiffly pendulous side branches and a vigorous upright leader. It has an even more narrow form then Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Barabit's Requiem' and although growing to be quite tall, its habit can be slightly corkscrewed rather than absolutely vertical.
This adds to its charm and small groups can be grown to give a "cathedral effect" (i.e. walking between pillars), when several are planted 3 to 4 m apart.
