This is not a Trader Joe's-branded item, but it was being sold at my local TJ's, and presumably at others. I've also seen them on sale at other grocery stores. I loved it immediately. Part of the reason is that they're calling it a "Grump Tree" (probably to avoid the trademark issues that might arise if they called it the obvious thing, a "Grinch Tree"), and the other blog I keep is called "Poker Grump."
If I can manage to keep this thing alive through the winter, I hope to plant it in my girlfriend's large back yard. She has planted several different kinds of trees, but none of them evergreens, so a lemon cypress should make a nice addition.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
