What's the difference between vertical grain Redwood and flat grain redwood?

Redwood lumber has either flat or vertical grain. Siding is considered vertical grain when the annual growth rings form an angle of 45 degrees or more with the surface of the siding. If the angle is less than 45 degrees, the siding is known as flat grain. Vertical grain siding possesses enhanced dimensional stability and will hold paints and finishes better than flat grain.
