I've been reading up on Pinus jeffreyi and it's close relation to Pinus ponderosa. Fascinating about the serpentine soils Jeffrey Pine it is tolerant of and the explosive results of the pure n-heptane in the resin being mistaken for ponderosa in pre-1853 distillation. Do you come across the Jeffrey as well as the Ponderosa?

If I had room I would grow both P.j 'Joppi' and P.p 'WB SDL DD'.

I like surgeon style conifer photos!
The last one is Pinus albicaulis Carlton Ridge # 3 instead of WB3 or Jerry Morris 3 etc. I suggest the use of the finding place. In Europe every noname Jerry conifers are labeled as Jerry Morris, that makes me ko.

Thanks guys. Tom I hope spring makes it your way asap. I've been watching bud break for a couple weeks here. A coldest winter on record for all of us since 92' I suppose.

'Kaktus' looks mugo, at least to me. 'Maja' I've seen as: pseudopumilio, uncinata, and mugo. I don't know which it is.

You guys have some really clear shots. I was just walking up to the mailbox and snapped a few quick ones.

Clement,
Picea abies Araucaroides is a very old hungarian cultivar.

Araucaroides
(Beissn. 1905) Mesterházy 2010 in Conifer Treasury
1905 Saaghy in Kamoni Arboretum, Szombathely HUN
A very strong growing, rugh, rustic tree with few branchlets and few buds. Looks like a framework, or an Araucaria.
Dariusz Burdan in Poland has elder exemplars of this one.

Hello Clement,

I saw a medium plant there in the nursery. It was a very characteristic plant and i wanted one also;-)

Alongside the 'Mamut Torony' pictures in Google Images was one of Picea pungens 'Sanctuary' a similarly very impressive specimen. What's the story behind that one Nate? Was it previously named? Did you successfully propogate some scions?

Final question - did you have success with the P.mugo 'Schweizer Tourist'? I still keep an eye out for one here, so far in vain.

Sluice, good to see your 'Schweizer Tourist' it's a really attractive plant that I hope I will get one day.

The P.p 'Mamut Torony' & 'Sanctuary' would make an impressive pairing in a big enough setting. Great that you have both of them.
