Hopefully people can share their pictures too, please do.
Abies fraseri 'Wingle's Blue Bonnet'
Abies koreana 'Gait' flower
Nice! The Korean fir flower looks great.
Things are waking up here too.
Pinus flexilis 'Evermore'
Pinus contorta 'Sphene'
Fantastic!!! You guys are real artistists in photography too!
Thanks Jarpe! Please post some pictures of yours too.
Abies koreana 'Blue Emperor' flower
Great candle shots Sluice, a couple of mine...
Jalubi (Aquired as a young graft from Bluespruce)
Pinus uncinata 'Cely' (Again from Bluespruce)
Nice! I'm a big fan of Jalubi.
P. ponderosa selection
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'.
Pinus heldriechii 'Zwerg Schneverdingen'
Severnside, the Jeffrey is not native to my locale.
Pinus flexilis 'South Park'
Pinus parviflora 'Tenysu-kazu'
Pinus albicaulis 'III'
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.
Unsure of name but one of my favorites.
Everything's coming out amazing after awful winter here.
Good to hear your conifers survived the winter, cococo!
The second pic looks like a Taylor's Sunburst lodgepole pine - much farther along than mine.
Pinus banksiana 'Angel' (with internode buds!)
Zsolt, thanks for the additional information on albicaulis.
Picea omorika 'Riverside'
Picea orientalis 'Skylands'
Abies koreana 'Silver Show'
Pinus contorta var.latifolia 'Chief Joseph'
Abies koreana silberlocke
Abies koreana icebreaker
Close up of the icebreaker
Abies koreana Blue Magic cones
Great color on the Chief needles.
And the Blue Magic cones are excellent!
Great shots DiCaro, I'm still tempted to get an A.k 'Blue Magic'.
That's a brilliant close up Sluice, really captures the new foliage texture.
A similar looking push but an abies this time;
Abies pinsapo 'Marokko'
The pinsapo is stunning!
Picea obovata 'Coerulea'
Pinus sylvestris 'Inverleith'
sublime ... lucky i came over to the gallery just for the heck of it ...
i am going to post a link over on the other side of the forum ...
thx for the pix
Skylands, female cone
Pinus ponderosa candle
Beautiful ethereal quality to your photography Sluice. Just amazing!
Pinus mugo 'Carl Fricard'
Pinus mugo 'Maja'
Pinus mugo 'Kaktus'
Picea abies 'Pusch'
There are a whole lot of very fine pix here. Thank you folks. If we ever get warm enough, I hope to post as well. Likely June at this rate.
Great mugos Dax, though I have seen 'Kaktus' labelled as uncinata.
You must be stir crazy TJ, but I guess April is still late winter in places.
Another of mine
Pinus flexilis 'Piute'

The Pinus mugo 'Carl Fricard' looks great! Glad to see things are waking up there, Dax.
Severnside, that's a nice Pinus flexilis 'Piute' specimen.
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.
All great photos!
This is one of mine:
Abies koreana 'Verdener Dom'
Pinus nigra `Aurea`
Pinus heldreichii `Atzes Saeule`
Picea abies `Bohemica Pendula`
Picea abies `Push`
Pinus sylvestris `Trollguld`
Pinus mugo `Humphy`
Hope you enjoy.

Hello JOANDRE, I search for 1 picea abies "Araucana" from many years, please have you a source for me ?
I'm in Belgium.
Picea abies Araucaroides is a very old hungarian cultivar.
(Beissn. 1905) MesterhÃÂ¡zy 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.
as Zsolt mentioned right, my suorce of this plant was Burdan Nursery in Poland.
I saw a medium plant there in the nursery. It was a very characteristic plant and i wanted one also;-)
You have many very special plants JOANDRE, please keep us updated on them.
Brilliant picture of Abies Koreana 'Verdener Dom' cones Lio. Thanks!
Spring has finally arrived here in the Northeast.
Picea abies 'Mucronata'
Picea omorika 'Peve Tijn'
Pinus contorta 'Frisian Gold'
Abies pinsapo 'Glauca'
Abies koreana 'Fruhlingsgold'
joandre, I guess its time to start a private mailing between us. Please.
Great pictures Maple, glad your spring has arrived!
Abies lasiocarpa 'Alpine Beauty'
Abies lasiocarpa 'Kyles' Alpine'
Abies lasiocarpa 'Beth Mini' (from Stephen Grubb)
Nice Liopleurodon, Joandre, Alex, and Severnside!
Picea glauca 'Ketch Harbor'
Picea pungens 'Mamut Torony'
Picea pungens 'Pendula'
Pinus sylvestris 'Gold Coin'
Pinus banksiana 'Al Johnson'
Great pictures Nate & Garen59
The Picea pungens 'Mamut Torony' - WOW! - I Googled some images and Zsolt's 'Organic Conifering 4' thread shows the beast itself. Your macro shot is quite the teaser.

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.

Abies lasiocarpa 'Prickly Pete'
Wow, this thread is really starting to pick up steam. Great photos everybody!
Severnside, your lasiocarpas are extremely fine!
Here are a couple more photos.
Larix kaempferi 'Grey Pearl'

Pinus sylvestris 'Jeremy'
Thanks Severnside! The 'Prickly Pete' looks great.
I like the larch too, Alex!
Here is P.mugo 'Schweizer Tourist'
P. pungens 'Sanctuary' graft. I spotted that tree in a cemetery while driving in to town one day, and decided to call it Sanctuary.
Garen, the banksiana Al Johnson is really taking off!
Here is a time lapse of a P. contorta flower.
April 17, April 29, and May 8
Thanks Maple! Great pics yourself there. I've recently seen a large Larix broom on top of a tree which I'll try and get a picture of.
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.
So many great pictures here that I would frame and hang on the wall as artwork.
Those pungens are amazing.
Here's a few from today.
Pinus mugo 'Carstens'
Picea abies 'Summer Daze' with it's first sort of cone thing kind of. =)
Pinus thunbergii 'Thunderhead'
Picea omirika 'Peve Tijn'
That is a strange looking cone on your 'Summer daze' Garen. The green bracts (?) look like new growth. Nice though.
Abies koreana 'Brilliant'
Picea sitchensis 'Papoose'
Pinus mugo 'Piggelmee'
Abies lasiocarpa 'Logan Pass'
Picea abies 'Pusch'
GREAT pictures Starterdude, that middle one looks like a rose. Beautiful.
Abies koreana 'Gait'
Those last 4 photos are simply awesome. Okay, now I realy need to buy a good camera rather than taking pictures with my phone. The depth of field and those macro shots, gorgeous!
Don't be so sure Garen, your 'Summer Daze' pic takes some beating. Easily on a par with Frank's fantastic 'Pusch'.
Pinus mugo 'Hulk'
Great pics alltogether!!!!!
Severnside, i like your Abies koreana `Gait` and Starterdude, incredible pics of your `Push`.
Here are some other from my garden.
Picea orientalis `Sulphur Flush`
Abies koreana `Blauer Eskimo`
Picea abies `Hliza`
Picea abies `Parsoni WB`

Great plants there JOANDRE. Thanks for posting.
Cedrus libani 'Green Prince' 4th season of growth.
Pinus ayacahuite "Masonic Village"....."Hopefully" pollinated by Pinus stylesii with Cerro Potosi, Neuvo Leon, Mexico provenance.
Cedrus libani 'Green Prince' is such cool one. Sadly I lost mine this year to the cold winter
For fun here's a 40 year old 'Green Prince' growing at Buchholz and Buchholz. With time even slow growers can get big =)
That's some exotic manipulation Conifer50. Great pic.
Wow Garen, that must be the biggest GP I've seen pictured. It certainly seems to speed up as it gets older, mine is still in the very slow period for now. Thanks for posting that. Sorry you lost yours, the winter toll across the US collectors is not far short of catastrophic.
Nice! I like the Summer Daze, Pusch, Hulk, Blauer Eskimo, Masonic Village cone, and Green Prince!
Picea abies 'Golden Beskid'
Pinus contorta 'Frisian Gold'
Here is another micro. Pinus sylvestris 'Gold Coin'
Great pics! Wow that 'Gold Coin' close up is simply incredible. It must be only 5-6mm across. Stunning.
Pinus longaeva 'Schulman Grove'
