pinus patula

winterfellMarch 20, 2014

these tiny seedlings are supposed to be pinus patula. When i got the seed i thought the seeds were very small for a pine and were wingless. They looked like spruce seeds. Here are the seedlings, a penny for scale. Do they look right? Or were they mislabeled? Too soon to tell?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Left hand seedling looks OK; Pinus patula seeds are fairly small. Plenty of other pines that would fit this appearance as well though.

The right hand seedling is dubious, as it only has 3 cotyledons, whereas Pinus patula usually has 5-9 cotyledons. Can't tell what it is at this stage, it'll have to wait until it produces some adult foliage.


Edit: forgot to add, commercial seed suppliers usually remove the seed wings before sale.
