Metasequoia 'Ogon' dawn redwood in fall color

Here's an earlier photo of the dawn redwood 'Ogon' in it's fall color. The leaf shedding is rapid once it turns reddish brown. This tree is two years in ground now and grew more than 4 feet this year. It should be 10-15 feet by the end of next year.

A great fast growing tree but I wish it would retain its bright yellow needles all year. The yellow glow it casts is brighter than any of the other evergreen varieties we have in the yard. Really an outstanding color and tree.
