Hello Laurel, thank you for your words of kindness. I updated the record, correcting typos and bringing it up-to-date. Let me know if there is anything else you'd like to know.

In 2007, I purchased a Larix lyallii from Forestfarm. They are not currently offering it. Mine has not had any cones yet...

Posted 1 day ago by Laurel to Sulphurea

Hello, there! I love this site - thank you for all the work you all do with it. But, I'm trying to verify the cultivar of a conifer planted in 2003. It's named C. pisifera 'Sulphurea'. I've seen this cultivar name in the printed RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers (2012), but it is not listed here (except…

Andres, Yes, this cypress will grow very well in Los Angeles. It prefers full sun and well drained soil. It will grow fast and large. It can take the hot western sun exposure that wilts many plants.

I came to this page to figure the same thing out ! I’m actually in big island and trying to get a tree too! I would love to talk to your friend Hilo side. I’ve sold Christmas trees on New York for a few years and I love this tree!

Anyone on here know of anyone who collects the cones/seeds of this tree? Looking to get some.

Posted 3 days ago by Brad Biliter, ASLA to recs on variety(Pinus)

Guys hoping to get some recommendations here. I'm looking for a specimen tree to put between my walk and driveway near the corner of my house. The species I want is P. thurnburgii. Anyone have experience with a cultivar in the 10'x5' range approx?. The space is flexible. I love 'hakuko' ( and this…

this species will work well for the conditions you describe.

absolutely not invasive. I've never heard of it naturalizing outside of its native range in the Himalaya. As for whether it's suitable for an urban yard: that's impossible to say without knowing where on the Earth the yard is.

I am wondering if this tree is invasive or if it is suitable for an urban yard. Thank you.

I am looking for some plants to put on 1.5 acre lawn that will help wildlife forage in winter here in Southern Michigan. Soil is moist in some places and clay in others. Thanks for your help.

Hello, will this tree grow in Los Angeles? I am in Sunset climate zone 22. I see lots of pine trees around. hanks

Hi Mary, we have a member who grows Christmas trees out of Hilo. He might actually have this one.

Posted 5 days ago by David Olszyk to Blue Ice

no, there isn't. Cupressus is monoecious.

I am interested in a source for these for Christmas trees on Hawaii Big Island and I am not finding any leads - would you know of any Nursery that sells/ships to Hawaii? Thank you in advance.

Jan is doing well and the nursery is still alive - just not the same as it once was. Almost everything that was in a container is now in planted in the ground. I was out there in November and tagged/purchased around half dozen plants.

Posted 6 days ago by David Olszyk to European Nursery - Nirvana for Coneheads

actually nobody out west really knows for sure. EN was enigmatic during the best of times. Ever since Jan and Magda divorced, it's been a long, slow race to the bottom.

Posted 6 days ago by Scott Antrim to European Nursery - Nirvana for Coneheads

Visited EN several times years ago but think I heard it is no more. Perhaps one of the Western Region folks can chime in. Had tons of exotic cultivars, not the same old stuff that can be found in almost every US conifer nursery.

did you scroll through the entire gallery?

Is there a full image somewhere of this tree?

Posted 7 days ago by Bruce Nelson to Remedies for likely pesticide poisoning of large Sequoiadendron giganteum

Does anyone have any experience for remedies for a likely intentional pesticide poisoning of a 9' dbh, 100' tall giant redwood? 5 holes drilled into trunk on south side of tree sometime in early to mid-February, discolored foliage on same side of tree that extends about 2/3 of way up tree. Not yet…

as long as it doesn't get below 10°F and humidity stays fairly low, it'll do fine.

Posted 7 days ago by Mark Solomon to libani

Will the Cedus libani grow in Northern Indiana. ?

Posted 8 days ago by David Olszyk to Oregon Green

sure ...

Posted 8 days ago by Hannah Hubbard to Oregon Green

Is this a good choice for Eastern Washington, specifically the shore of Lake Chelan with occasional high winds?

Posted 8 days ago by David Olszyk to Nana

Hi Katherine. This cultivar is a male clone ... no berries to be expected.

Posted 8 days ago by David Olszyk to Adpressa

I need to write up this one (blank slate). It's the foliage that's adpressed against the stems. I've seen pictures of plants with berries, so I assume female.
