few recent shots (13 Replies)

Posted January 10, 2015 at 10:28 am


some of my very recent Niwaki training tree’s: simple east coast Cedars, easy to work with, ubiquitous and very forgiving tree’s


a few Pines: thunderhead, Vibrant, Banshosho and Vanderwolf’s still in a 3 gallon in the rear


A nice Carstens on the right there, and another nice Pendula on the left. I also love the dwarf Spruce’s: I have several dozen scattered throughout my place(1 acre), including some Bonsai, easy to work with and look great all the time. Lots of Acer Palmatum seedlings in the back: I currently have over 600(estimate) in pots and trays and always collecting more!


what’s a garden without some Podo? Also in the back is a (hanging in there) Dragon eye, I built the wall from my old recycled driveway 🙂

Very nice! And clearly you have the ‘disease’…I love the podocarps, too. That ‘Vanderwolf’ looks so small and delicate and sweet…for a while anyway!

Greg’s Variegated


Cesarini Blue (Flexis)

a few more small ones: Nisbits Gold in the pot, Adcocks Dwf, a Mitsch Mini in the ground and Valley cushion/mops dwf in the rectangle pot

still in his pot Tanyosho: red pine right guys? 🙂 still have not settled on a spot for this one


I bought three of these I like them so much! Goldilocks (Parviflora) also put one in a pot and it’s doing very well


another one I really like is Kotobuki

if you have not gotten yourselves a Zebrina yet; you’re missing out!! another favorite…..wait, they’re all the favorite……..
Pinus Wallichiana……….I am not a college graduate, I went to Culinary school so please forgive any spelling mistakes haha
this tree is gorgeous YEAR AROUND!!!

yes I bought it like that LOL, but no matter! it’s still very cool, and vigorous!!! I have to constantly trim under the groups to keep them clean and separated, scotch pine, the other one I bought I hacked to the top where only one plume sits…….and I love it haha
tired yet? haven’t gotten to my Chamaecyparis yet 🙂

Yes I have a ‘Zebrine’ and I even re-leadered it! I love many pines – I think that P. ponderosa and P. jeffreyi are my favs but a lot of the others like sylvestris, banksitna, etc are right up there. And I too love ‘Loma Linda’ – I have that one right in front of the house!

Nice job, Colby! That’s a great cultivar for pruning and exposing that lovely bark.
