Beautiful fir Dax.

I came close to buying a 'Golden Spreader' this spring.

I wanted it bad but common sense ruled the day. That doesn't happen to often.

I put in 2 little 18" 'Golden Spreaders' last year.

Fried one, and the other is in a mostly shaded location and doing very well.

Dax, I see a lot of these with a lighter lime green push around here but yours is almost a cream color. Very dramatic and pretty contrast. How long does it hold?

It's just a spring flush but at least three weeks. I'll watch it more closely cause I'm not really sure.

Hi Ken, only since Saturday. Those were the real first days I guess I'd call them where the temps soared into the 90's. Prior to that nope.

Later guys,

Dax

That's a very nice looking plant, Dax! The name is great, too. (When I first read that I thought your sisters name was Lime. haha)
