They create the same vertical effect as tinsel on a Christmas tree.

SIZE: Coast silk tassel matures at 12- to-15-feet tall and as wide.
SEE IT: At the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens Native Plant Trail; 145 Alverson Blvd., Everett; for more information see www.evergreenarboretum.com and take a virtual photo tour. 425-257-8597.
