Can you believe? This year we had a Nootka false weeping cyprus for a Christmas tree! It seemed a bit scandalous to find one CUT at a garden shop -- one of a kind -- but I couldn't resist and it made a great mix of Charlie Brown/decorator tree dressed with one single string of icicle lights and about 15 lime green balls. So -- has anyone heard of growers producing these trees for the Christmas market? It was MUCH less expensive than I would expect compared to a potted version. And I'm going to be disappointed if I can't find another next year. Oh -- it looks pretty spectacular spending the winter tied to the fence in our back yard.
