The new growth at the top was a vivid gold. This species flowered at the end of the year, producing a smothering blanket of fluffy white blossoms that gave forth the scent of cinnamon. They were universally known as Christmas Trees.

They had long been regarded as oddities, a weak species gradually decreasing in numbers in the wild. Then, comparatively recently, science had redeveloped to the point where botanists realised that conifers shouldn’t be flowering at all, much less producing a cinnamon scent. They slowly came to recognise that Christmas Trees were in fact the product of heavy genetic manipulation.
