About Pseudotsuga menziesii ‘Christmas Candles’: This beautiful illuminated Douglas fir tree was spotted a week before Christmas, all decked out for the holiday season, lights included! We traveled a road in the Cascade mountains on the west side of White Pass Ski Resort. The road was still navigable, not yet explored, or closed, or filled with snow. The Pseudotsuga menziesii tree was on a rocky hillside, with moss covered loose rocks on the incline. We slipped and slided but managed to acquire a few scions! It will be fun to see if this new cultivar saves it’s color for the Christmas season, or maybe we will have ‘Christmas Candles’ illuminating the yard all year long!
