Searched the site, and found slim pickings on this subject.  Any idea where i can find good information on care, styling, etc. for Dawn Redwoods?

OK, since I posted this I have found some information on the Internet.......very sparse, and actually contradictory!  Does no one on this fine forum have no information?

What type of information are you looking for? 

In my experience Dawn Redwoods grow like weeds!!  They are extremely hearty plants.  Japanese beetles love them, so you need to keep an eye out for them.  Since the trunks tend to grow fairly straight, they make nice formal uprights.  They are also great for making group plantings.  I keep mine in full sun most of the growing season.  The roots grow extremely quickly!!!  I've had to repot every 2 - 3 years.
