Cool plants! I can't believe that Sequoiadendron giganteum. What zone is it there in Denver?
Thanks for taking the time to share, Nate.

Thanks Nate, great photos. That Pendulum is really cool, great plant to recommend for those needing something narrow. The bark on that parv is interesting.

Thanks Severnside, Matt, Cher, and Sara!

This garden is at zone 5b (blue) in Denver.

I'm in a 6a banana belt (green) northwest of the city.
