My favourite #conifer 🌲 the Asian or Chinese relative of the #redwoods - Metasequoia or Dawn Redwood - but hard to see these ones as it was raining and foggy today ☔️ 🌧 ⛅️ unlike their North American cousins these guys are deciduous and have stunning copper autumn foliage - these ones are just coming into leaf for Spring, see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasequoia #metasequoia #metasequoiaglyptostroboides #dawnredwood #bluemountainsbotanicgarden #mttomahbotanicalgardens #bluemountains #bluemountainsnsw #bluemountainsaustralia #nsw #australia #treeporn #plantporn #gardening #landscaping #garden #tree #conifers #pines

And not to forget the #coastalredwoods brothers the #sierraredwood with a #whiterhododendron #rhododendron at #bluemountainsbotanicgarden #mttomahbotanicalgardens - don’t often see these in Australia - #wellingtonia, see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequoiadendron_giganteum #redwoods #redwood #nsw #australia #sequoiadendron #sequoiadendrongiganteum

And a more mauve tinged one... Fugunzo cherry in flower - this Cultivar was bred more than 1,000 years ago in Japan, the trees don’t get completely covered in blossom like the modern hybrids, but on mass in a grove they look amazing - the trees grow very tall for a cherry and the individual flowers and bunches are the largest amongst cherries 🍒 #prunusserrulata #prunus #serrulata #japanesecherryblossom #fugunzocherry #japanesecherryblossoms #sweetcherry #cherryblossom #cherryblossums #cherry #floweringcherry #flowerporn #pornflowers #cherriesofinstagram #nsw #australia see, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prunus_serrulata #bluemountainsbotanicgarden #mttomahbotanicalgardens
