A few spruces with yellow new growth:


Picea orientalis ‘Skylands.’ Just starting to push out.


Picea omorika ‘Peve Tijn.’ I really like this cultivar. The new growth is bright yellow, while the old growth is green and silver and blue.


Picea orientalis ‘Nigra Compacta.’ Even the needles of this normally darker green Oriental Spruce start off yellowish.


Picea glauca ‘Pixie Dust.”

Mmmmm… just nothing like fresh new foliar growth! We had such an early start with very mild temperatures, but our normal spring returned with all kinds of cold precipitation and enough of a drop in temperature to slow things down a bit. I hope people keep posting!

A few more:


Cryptomeria japonica ‘Cristata.’ I love those fasciations.


Picea pugens ‘Globosa.’ Brilliant new blue growth.


Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Split Rock.’ New cones.


Picea orientalis ‘Tom Thumb Gold’ (or is it just Tom Thumb?) on the left and Cedrus libani var. brevifolia ‘Kenwith’ on the right.

A few from this spring.


Picea alcoquiana cones. I have this one labeled as Picea bicolor ‘Howell’s Dwarf Tigertail,’ but I think things have changed. Whatever the proper name, those cones are beautiful.


Pinus parvifloria ‘Tanima no yuki’


Metasequoia glyptostroboides ‘ Ogon’
