Four years of Pseudotsuga menziesii 'Fletcherii'

A great option for a soft, blue-green shrub. I've seen old specimens in photos about five feet tall and three feet wide - probably at 25-30 years old. My specimen, as you can see below, seems to grow about two inches(5 cm) a year. Also note this is probably a coastal variety, both with the heavier/fuller needles and happy/healthy state in our wet Pacific Northwest climate.

Very nice, I've been playing 'see which specimens disappear and spring up in the background'.

Nice plant, Will. Fitting name for you as well. Severnside, you invented a great game! ha!

Really nice. I can't believe how much it grew between 2010 and 2011.
