Before/ After Growing Season Photos (2 Replies)

Posted September 9, 2017 at 9:39 pm

A few of these took off more than expected. Photos taken in early May and early September in 7b/GA.

Cedrus deodara ‘Feelin Sunny’, that’s a newly formed 25″ leader! Receives a few hours of afternoon shade. Monrovia selection.

Cupressus glabra ‘Blue Ice’. I was expecting a foot, but not three… And it only receives 4 hours of direct sun. I’m happy about it traveling up and not out though. Btw- any tips for killing wild violets?

Cupressus macrocarpa ‘Donard Gold’. Like the others, this one received more than enough water this summer. Easily went up 2′ and out 1′. Will have to consider pruning options soon, since I hear it doesn’t take well to transplanting. Monrovia selection.

Pinus thunbergii ‘Thunderhead’. Starts early and ends late. Iseli selection.

Cryptomeria japonica ‘Gyokuryu’ in full sun. Added 1′ in all directions.

You will be needing to prune that ‘Thunderhead’ – don’t wait too long to do it. Mine gets at least 1/2 of its mass removed each year. I’ll try to dig up a photo. As for the violets, I have never figured out anything that works better than good old weeding. Over and over and over….
Great shots!

Monrovia claims that ‘Feelin’ Sunny’ is a golden sport found on ‘Feelin’ Blue.’ I’m not buying that claim. Everyone I’ve seen starts losing the yellow and turns into a tree. I removed mine 3 years ago.
