From BRUCE KENNEDY, Carmichael:

Bruce Kennedy created a different kind of evergreen for his backyard – a wine "bottle bush." His wife then took the project one step further, making a faux botanical notecard with a photo of the recycled glass sculpture – the Kennedys' own Arborium silicosium 'Californicus.'

"This is one of two wine- bottle trees I designed for my backyard. Fabricated for me by a metal worker in Roseville, the tree's frame carries 403 750-milliliter wine bottles. My wife, Peggy, took the photo and fabricated the card itself. I should note that she pointed out that the fake Latinate horticultural label is incorrect in its suffixes and will be improved in the next edition of the card."
