Had never heard of these till I saw one on gtags. I read that they have flexible branches that turn upward at the ends. Like the branch formation. Great choice Kerry. 💚

Hi Kerry there was a garden where they had a beautiful mature Monkey Puzzle tree it was huge and a bit of a local landmark. It stood for years and years until one day it was cut down to just a stump. I don’t know why but it was such a shame and now it feels odd not to see it anymore 😔😢

@hkyfvr they’re crazy things! At a decent size they look incredible but remind me of those blow up things outside of car dealerships 🤣🤣🤣

@philstalder there’s a full sized one on my village, over 2 storeys high, and it looks amazing! When the cones come it looks even more special 🤩 super violent spikes though 😝

@mich they really are quite a sight aren’t they! And you’re right about razor sharp 😂 even potting it up was a task 🙈

@KOutdoors so sad they cut it down 😞 they’re so unique looking that it’ll be hard to fill the space with anything else 😐

I love those blow up guys. At least they have no sharp spikes. 😆

I know Kerry I agree, even now it looks so open and bare and it’s been years now. It was absolutely huge and magnificent to see 🤔
