It was quite striking when I saw it at the SFA arboretum. Pure white and lovely. They had quite a number of them planted in a nice big group planting.

Wow, wild applause. Hurray! I tip my hat to you. Hurray! When I saw it, I thought, "This is one of the best banners I've seen in a long while." It's classy, beautiful, and in most years it would almost qualify as seasonal, as least in this snow zone. Smiling
