"...a slow-growing, irregular, mounding selection of Dawn redwood with attractive lush sprays of soft, light green foliage tinged with a rich orange-yellow cast. Typical rate of growth in most areas is 5 inches (12 cm) in most directions, slightly less wide than tall, resulting in a shaggy mound, 50 inches (120 cm) tall and 30 inches (90 cm) wide after 10 years in the garden.
This is a witches broom selection from Jack Wikle of Tecumseh, Michigan. He found the original ortet at the Matthaei Botanical gardens, Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1989. ‘Matthaei Broom’ is sometimes seen incorrectly listed in the nursery trade as ‘Matthaei,’ or as ‘Head Hunter'." – American Conifer Society
