The world´s largest albino plants are the albino coastal redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens) presently numbering between 25 and 60 in total that exist in secret sites within four separate localities in California. These are: Henry Cowell State Park; an unspecified locality near Aptos; Big Sur State Park; and Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Some are only the size of large bushes, but others are up to 21 m tall. Totally lacking chlorophyll (and hence known as everwhites rather than evergreens), they are a pallid white colour, with thin limp waxy needles, and are much more delicate than normal green specimens.
