Information Only - An eye-catching selection with a vigorous, upright habit and stiffly weeping side branches. Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Barabit's Requiem' is named in honour of Dr. Barabits, commissioned by the Soviet authorities in Hungary to select the finest specimens of native trees to act as seed sources for a huge afforestation programme in the 1950's. After imprisonment for involvement in the revolution, he became a professor and nurseryman.

A handsome weeping, narrow garden tree. and is suitable for smaller gardens with its very narrow growth habit.

This plant is currently listed on our website for Information Only - Sadly it is not currently available for sale. We hope to have this plant for sale at some point in the future and at this time it will be re-enabled on our website.

We do however have a semi-mature specimen of this plant on display in our woodland gardens.
