Broom Universe 73 - Czech Masters 15 - Jozef J. Halda

mesterhazypinetum(6)November 19, 2011

Mr. Jozef J. Halda is a world known botanist. Many books show his life work, where not the conifers are on the first place.

His garden owns extremely old brooms, living in lying big trunks.

Mr. Halda and his wife like the greek shores, where he also found Abies cephalonica, Pinus leucodermis and Pinus nigra brooms. As Mrs. Halda is a fan of the greek mythology, more then 65 greek brooms were named after mythologycal persons. Some of them I could document in other conifer collections.

Enjoy the photos, please.
