Majestic Weeping Nootka

This Weeping Nootka was a gift from my friend Andrea. It grows about 1' per year. In five years it has grown from 3' to 8' tall.
Each year we stand gawking at it in amazement. It is planted at the back of our yard at the lowest elevation and loves the moisture. I laugh when I say "lowest elevation" as the elevation is ever so slight but enough for the rain to run off to it providing and retaining more moisture than anywhere else on the property.
Thank you again Andrea, for this beautiful and majestic gift.
