Hello, first post here. I'm a rank amateur gardener, and I'm looking for a place to read things, and seek advice at times. Thought I'd try here :-) I have 4 Chamaecyparis Obtusa Marble Mountain, 2 in the ground, 2 still in pots. I got them about 2 years ago, quite small, and they have been slowly growing. Over the last, ahh, maybe 6 months or more, 2 of them have developed a relatively fast growing branch, or shoot, or something. It so far doesn't look like the rest of the plant. Is this part of a normal growth pattern?
