This wonderful little tree gets oohs and ahs all year long, but especially in the spring as its chartreuse buds begin to emerge in a sparse fernlike pattern. The leaf pattern combined with the interesting branch structure gives a bonsai like feeling. It really is eye catching and a great centerpiece for your patio or deck. I suspect ours would be a little more full with more sun exposure, but the open growth is actually very attractive on this tree.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
