Dawn Redwood, greening up (36 mm base diam., 24 mm diam up 1m)
In it's first November it was green, then brown, over night. I watered it. Stayed brown. I gave it up for dead, another victim of pocket gophers. But then this spring, when I went to pull up the well gnawed stump, it held. Then buds came. It's back. It grew 1 1/2 feet last year, can't wait to see what it does this season.
