A sculptural form – no two are alike! Leaders can grow in any direction forming an informal upright to a mound when the leaders have chosen to grow almost horizontally. All branches twist and turn. Note: likely the same as ‘Bush’s Twister’ – we cannot see a difference in the young plants – same growth rate and twisting branches throughout. A ‘Bush’s Twister’ we saw at the nursery of the late Dick Bush of Canby, OR – is upright with twisted branches. Some ‘Uncle Fogy’ specimens we have seen are less upright. This shape difference can be completely attributed to grower training or propagation using a side branch compared to using a cutting from the top whorl of growth. Either way, it is a terrific selection!
