Pseudotsuga menziesii ‘Sitting Pretty’

This cute little round Pseudotsuga menziesii broom was discovered perched ‘Sitting Pretty’ on a tree. It was first spotted as a silhouette against a gray evening sky and looked like a full moon. It was in the Cascade Mountain range by Stampede Pass, near another cool broom we harvested on the same day, Abies amabilis ‘Pacific Crest’! It was somewhat difficult to harvest because the snow was really deep and we were sinking up to our waist as we ascended the hill to retrieve it…so Cheryl found a short-cut back down the hill to the snowmobile!
