Sequoias are truly extraordinary trees–they are magnificent giants of the tree world. Their natural California habitat range falls within USDA Zone 9, in elevations between 4000 and 8000 ft, but they can be successfully grown outside of their native region in outdoor areas hardy to USDA Zone 6 and kept as young potted trees with a little extra care. With distinctive cinnamon-colored bark and growing to a massive size, Sequoias are truly awe-inspiring. Individual trees growing in their native environment can be thousands of years old, average a 40 ft spread, and grow hundreds of feet tall. 

Best Locations For Growing Sequoia Tree

Caring for a Sequoia tree in a pot will be crucial to providing it the support it needs to eventually be grown in a large, open sunny area. They are fast growers, often at a rate of 4 - 6 feet per year. You will need to acclimate your tree slowly to the outdoors, by providing a location that has partial shade and in a few weeks, slowly move it closer to an area that has full sun. Sequoias need to be planted in moist, very loose, well-draining soil. They will not tolerate dry or heavy clay soils or extreme temperature fluctuations. 

Sequoia Tree Sunlight Requirements

Place a young Sequoia tree in bright indirect light and gradually move it closer to direct sunlight over a few weeks; eventually, it will get acclimated to being in full sun the entire day. 

Sequoia Tree Care

Plant this tree in a well-draining soil, rich in organic matter with plenty of coconut coir and perlite to accelerate drainage. It will not tolerate dry soils, soggy soils, or extreme temperature fluctuations. Keep a regular eye on the moisture content of the soil by feeling a few inches into the pot. Place it in bright indirect light when you first receive your tree and slowly acclimate it to bright direct light. Because of their fast yearly growth rate, you may have to repot your Sequoia in a larger pot every year or two, eventually planting outdoors. 

Watering Sequoia Tree

Plant this tree in a pot that has plenty of drainage holes, keep the soil moist but not soggy, and avoid letting the soil completely dry out or become waterlogged. Regularly check the soil moisture with a soil probe or with your finger.

Feeding Sequoia Tree

High-salt fertilizers can burn your young tree roots, so avoid balanced fertilizers such as  10/10/10 or similar. Instead, you can apply organic fertilizers such as fish, alfalfa, or kelp formulas at a diluted strength.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
