Albino redwoods come in 7 different phenotypes or color variations:

  • White or off white
  • Bright yellow
  • Cellular virescent green
  • Pale green
  • Mottled
  • Non chimeric variegation
  • Chimeric variegation


There are two distinct locations on a redwood tree where they can be found:

  • Aeriel: Growing in the form of an independent branch or leader
  • Basal: Water sprouts originating from adventitious buds off the tree's burl


Worth mentioning, there are also other non-albino redwood mutations that can be seen in the forest:

  • Curly leaf
  • Fasciation
