Rare plants from Dennis Dodge to be auctioned at National Meeting

By Tom Cox

Bethlehem Nursery

 

I have just received from Bethlehem Nursery 15 choice and rare conifers from the Dennis Dodge collection. Attendees at the 2014 National meeting in Atlanta will have an opportunity to bid on these gems along with other choice, new selections. This is a great way to remember Dennis! A special thanks to his widow, Mary Lou Dodge for her generosity and to John O’Brien for all his assistance in making this happen. I also want to acknowledge the volunteer efforts of ACS member Ken Graham who took the time to drive to the nursery and then carefully pack and ship these to us. You are all caring, wonderful people!!!

The plants are from this collection to be auctioned are:
Picea glauca ‘AA Special’
Cryptomeria japonica (unnamed selection)
Platycladus orientalis ‘Maria’
Abies koreana ‘Silberzwerg’
Tsuga canadensis ‘Petite’ (very special plant)
Abies alba ‘Scarabantia’
Sciadopitys verticillata ‘Wintergreen’
Sciadopitys verticillata ‘Tsai cheng’
Abies pinsapo ‘Aurea’
Abies pinsapo ‘Fastigiata’
Juniperus virginiana (unnamed cultivar)
