Like some huge bird of prey with its wings outstretched, this tree highlights the landscaping at the Hampton Inn. Somewhat younger than the canti- levered specimen In Willow Street (see separate entry), this Glauca Pendula reaches 38 inches around its trunk, stands 14 feet tall, and boasts a 25-foot wingspan.  Its feathery branches envelope a lamp post.

 

This amazing cultivar is highly prized as an accent plant because of its graceful limbs that, untrimmed, event- ually droop to the ground.
