Leaves of metasequoia, or dawn redwood, currently have changed from green to brownish red in Xianghu Lake Scenic Area. The stunning reddish-brown foliage, rows after rows of dawn redwood trees, enhances the charm of winter.

The most flourishing dawn redwood forest stands near the Tiger Cave, Yuewang Road. Also known as the metasequoia, the tree is native to China and widely regarded as a living fossil since its existence dates back to the Cretaceous period.
