C.cashmeriana unbelievable growth
This was just planted late fall and the growth is radical. A full 40in and doesn't seem like it's going to slow down. I don't consider it settled in until this fall, and I thought the C. lusitanica growing 36in in its first year was good. This is the "limpid" one as BBoy says from Speciality Ornamentals that came from JC Raulston. No problem with 16F even just planted. Bad pic, I'm trying to hold the tape measure. It grows like Green Giant with the leader first then branching but much longer and rope like, that's an 8ft stake, I don't know how much bigger stake I want to deal with, hopefully it will stand on its own soon.
