Hi Wayne, I am an undergraduate at UCSD preparing for a senior research project in my major of Urban Studies and Planning, and I am thinking of researching some aspect of the Torrey pine species and its relevance, or lack there of, in San Diegan urban development over time. I am very interested in…

My whipcord I transplanted in the spring to a different location in the garde and it is has turned all brown. I live SW Ontario so it is fall. Can I cut it back and if so when ?

Posted 7 days ago by Sara Malone to Whipcord

Make sure that it doesn't dry out. Containers freeze/desiccate much faster than the ground does.

Whilst the provenance description may be correct, the tree is definately distinguishable from the specie. I have an example with me now and it has a gorgeous glaucous-white hue to it's foliage that it is quite unique. If you want a picture-just ask.

probably spruce, but impossible to say with certainty without pictures.

Arborvitae is an amazingly hardy plant, rated to zone 3. No problem overwintering at all for you. Never fertilize conifers in the fall! They need to get ready to sleep.

Hope Thuja can over winter in cement containers in zone 6-7 Hollytone too strong to use in fall?

I was in Hershey today, saw a conifer with the needle-supporting branchlets hanging straight down, the needles attached at about 45 degrees. Were many similar trees in the area. What is it?

Dave Collom; Keep in mind that P. morrisonicola is a subtropical species that requires cool winter temperatures but which cannot tolerate hard, prolonged, recurrent frosts. It has less densely tufted needles than most clones of the much more cold hardy P. parviflora. I last saw seeds of P.…

Hi Joe ... Iseli nursery produces this one by the 1000s. If your favorite local garden center doesn't normally carry it, ask them to place a special order for you.

Can you give me several growers or sources to buy the Butterball Hinoki Cyprss

Thank you all the replies and appreciate the input. Edriss.

We think that early English-speaking settlers called every tree that had aromatic bark a 'cedar', which is why there are so many conifers with the common name of 'cedar'. Makes it soooo confusing....

Posted 11 days ago by Sara Malone to libani

Edriss it's a Mediterranean tree. It doesn't like weather below freezing!

Posted 11 days ago by David Olszyk to scopulorum

No idea. I recommend searching for a tree seedling production nursery in the parts of the country where this one's native. If that fails, you may need to find a native stand and dig your own (with permission, of course).

Do you have any idea on where I can purchase 100 - 200 seedlings of Juniperus scopulorum / Rocky Mountain juniper? I've looked online but can only find seeds or larger trees.

Posted 12 days ago by David Olszyk to libani

ah, that's why you can't find it. No way that plant is hardy in MN.

I did a search on this very website and found this article: https://conifersociety.org/conifers/articles/conifer-propagation-101/

I am located in the St. Paul, MN area. Thank you very much for the info.

Where can I find information about how to propagate Pinus parviflora “Glauca Nana”? Japanese dwarf white pine.

Posted 12 days ago by David Olszyk to libani

plants are available at nearly every decent garden center. I have no idea where you are, so it's difficult to get more specific. Scheffield's has seed available.

Posted 12 days ago by Edriss Charaf to libani

Hello, Would you please recommend the place to by Cedrus libani plants or seeds. Tank you.

Posted 14 days ago by David Olszyk to Sparkling Arrow

Hi Kathy ... the genus Cupressus covers cypresses. Only plants in the genus Cedrus can be properly called cedars. This is a common error by those who create plant tags. The difference in mature heights can be easily explained. The ACS considers 10-year-old plants to be "mature." That DOES NOT…

Posted 14 days ago by Kathy Gallagher to Sparkling Arrow

I recently bought a sparkling arrow. In researching I find it is sometimes called Alaskan cedar and sometimes a cypress Both have different mature heights the cedar up to 30 feet or more cypress 15 feet. Could you explain?

Posted 14 days ago by Sara Malone to Dream Joy

Dan do you have one in North Carolina?

Posted 14 days ago by Sara Malone to IslPrim

This plant works great in groups. The planting looks like a miniature forest but has enough presence to work in a 'regular sized' garden!

Posted 16 days ago by David Olszyk to sempervirens

Hi Suzanne ... there has never been a cultivar named: 'Atlantica' in this species. Are you maybe looking at a mispelled 'Adpressa' ???
