Rispetto, under which name you got the yellow one, was it 'Lemon' or 'Gitte'?
Both are differend cultivars which have nothing to do with eachother...

'Verdon' (I think 'Verdoni' is the old spelling which is illegitimate, but I may be wrong..)

Edwin, it's labelled as Lemon, but I think it's Gitte. What is your opinion?

Rispetto, It's the 'Gitte' indeed, because of it's typical dull yellow colour.
It's found as a coarser branch mutation on a 'Tsatsumi Gold' by my good Dutch friend and collegue nurserieman Peter Schrauwen.

The cultivar name 'Lemon' is not complete and must be written as 'Yellow Twist' which is much more intense yellow and is a typical U.S. cultivar and not availlable in Europe yet...
It was found by the Buchholz Nursery as a mutation on a Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Torulosa Dwarf'.
The 'Lemon Twist' is also known as 'Lemon Thread'...

Rispetto, no thanks!
I do understand that the 'Gitte' is grafted on a stem, because of it's dwarfish growing habit.
But I don't understand why the 'Lycopodioides Aurea' is grafted on a stem as well, someday it will grow into a small tree...

Sam, you're right, it's 'Verdon'.
It's also known as 'Verdonii' but this is illegitimate because the dubbel ii is only possible when this selection was found before 1959, but it was found in 1966...

'Baldwin Variegated' for you, Edwin. (Is it not true that this name should not be possessive ('s) because it was found after a certain year...?)

Chamaecyparis obtusa, 'Frost'.
At least that's what it was sold to me as.

Sam, it's 'Golden Ceramic' aka 'Lynn's Golden'.
It's full original cultivar name was
'Lynn's Golden Ceramic Christmas Tree' which is more then a mouth full... ;0)

Wow.. That is a mouthful indeed.
Should I simply add "'Golden" or simply go back to the original name?

a brand new 'Chirimen' was added to the collection this past week. Very unique form with juvenile foliage.

It is amazing the differences between the various cultivars of a single species. 'Chirimen' is on the left with 'J.R.' ('Joe Reis') on the right.

Here's a couple of pictures I took today.
Is this a Chamaecyparis obtusa, 'Mariesii'?

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Lutea'.
I thought these were going to remain small. Thirty years later look what I have to deal with.
Foolish me. Now I'm going to have to do some serious pruning so I can see out of my house. Where do I start? What is my plan of attack?

Sam, 'Golden Ceramic' will do.
You're right about the big differences in the Chamaecyparis obtusa group, it has a lot of varieties in colours and shapes.

Mike, that's a 'Mariesii' indeed.
A while ago we also talked about your specimen which I like very much.
Normaly seen it will grow into a schrub form, your's does only have one leader which reminds me to a pagoda.

The 'Nana Lutea'are growing slow at first, but thirty years later they're still small in comparison to other faster growing cultivars of this species.
Very nice specimens in which you can be proud of!
You can prune those into topiaries which will make them as living art in your garden...enjoy!

Some words about the Ceramic question.
Life is not easy sometimes...

I have followings about this:
Golden Ceramic - 1986 T. J. Cole Canada listed by Washington Evergreen Nursery
Golden Christmas Tree goes back to /Golden Ceramic/

Then:
Golden Xmas Tree Kristick Nurs. PA USA 1980s years

Then comes Lynn:
Lynns Golden 1986 USA, Washington Evergreen Nurs., USA
Same time, same nursery, but no breeders name.

Don Howse makes a new name:
Lynn s Golden Ceramic Don Howses Porterhowse Farms OR USA
How became T.J. Cole s Golden Ceramic to Lynn s Golden Ceramic? Are they the same or two different cultivars?
Who is Lynn? The american conifering is full of such stories. Creative nurserymen, misspelling, new names - all for the business. But finally nobody knows the real names.

Zsolt, it seems that you've a very bad memory.
Like I said before, it's full name is
Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Lynn's Golden Ceramic Christmas Tree'.

It was found by Hank Weissenberger from Long Island and he named this yellow beauty after his wife...
