Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

    1. I'd never seen one with cones before and was delighted with them! Yours will do that in no time!

    1. Nope, don't have one. This is a very old one at Portland Avenue Nursery in Tacoma that covers all four sides of two huge buildings, forms an arch between them and another over the path between the other and a small house on the property.

  3. Beautiful. No cones on mine yet. Will they eventually show up as the tree matures? The cones are just the 'cherry' on these pretty (and useful in hiding the neighbor's driveway) trees. I love mine so much I named it Weeping Wilma.

  7. Very nice and very ornamental! On certain angles the cones somehow has reminded me of dried up ranunculus flowers.

    1. They do have that symetrical multi petal sort of look about them.

  8. Beautiful photos! I think my parents need one of these to help fill up all that space in their yard.

    1. I agree. Where do your parents live? Do they have a huge garden space?

  10. How amazing. From some angles they look like rosettes. Pretty cool!
