My DIL received this at a holiday party gift exchange. A Grump Tree is a Lemon Cypress tree.
“Instagram account @TraderJoesList announced the highly-anticipated arrival of the Trader Joe’s Grump Trees on Nov. 11, noting that each tree, wrapped in a red burlap sack (à la the Santa Claus toy sack the Grinch hauls with him around Whoville), topped with a sparkly Christmas ornament, and adorned in red ribbon, is selling for $8.99.”
