Photo by Missouri Botanical Garden
Mine is ten years old and almost always the first thing that a new visitor asks about when we’re standing on the deck looking over the back yard. The reason is beauty but also novelty (not many people have seen it). Growing at the back of the yard, it looks like a kind of gold grass shack, eight feet tall. The branches grow slightly upward at first and then arch downward gracefully as they get longer, draping over the ones below in a kind of cascade.
The utmost twigs are limber, almost limp, and they hang downward gracefully. So far, the bottom-most branches, the ones that fade away on many conifers, are still growing and golden, longer than the newer ones above. Here’s a look.

Plant Photo Tagging allows you to turn any garden photo into a rich tapestry of what you have planted. It’s fun, informative, and helpful to others visiting your garden. As you photo tag, you can easily add plant names from our database and/or make notes about anything you’d like. To get started, sign-in and go to your Garden.
Click on any image in your garden's slideshow Carousel to get to full-view mode. Click on the “Tag” icon just below your photo and you are ready to tag! Simply click and drag your mouse over a plant or area you’d like to highlight or tag. A pop-up box will appear and ask for either a plant name or a note - add one or both, then click “tag” and you’ve just tagged your garden!
