Grow a living fossil – a prehistoric tree!
This fanciful grow kit with its enchanting dinosaur-themed packaging brings a smile as well as everything needed to germinate a tree that has existed on our planet for millions of years! A living fossil! Thought extinct for millions of years, Dawn Redwood dates back to Mesozoic times, some 150 million years ago. Living Dawn Redwoods were “discovered” in West Central China in 1941. Unlike its Redwood Family relatives, Dawn Redwood is a deciduous tree, losing its bronze leaves each autumn and unfurling bright green, silky new needles in spring. Using this kit to grow one of these ancient organisms is like taking a ride in a time machine! Magical for young and old alike!
