Love the bismarks. If mine makes it through this winter inside I'll plant it in spring. Im not a fan of redwoods. I would love to be on the lake and have it surrounded by weeping willows.

Yes bismarcks are definitely a favorite of mine although not hardy in my area.

Very strange mishmash planting. Where is this?
Redwoods are the most impressive plants in my opinion. Nothing is more spectacular than a natural redwood forest with trees towering hundreds of feet above you. But a lone redwood planted by a pond surrounded by palms is just bizarre.
