Nate, it's good to see Jerry "alive" this time and not on a photo ;0)
That Juniperus is a very special one!
If that small one at the Denver Botanical Gardens is grafted in the end 70ties, how old must have bin the "mother plant"?

I'm ashamed to say I haven't been to DBG yet ... I want to, but not sure the kids would let me look enough.

It's a charmer as was Chub! A name true to the gentleman.

Scott, I agree, it can be difficult with the little ones.
The DBG folks have done a lot of work there recently, some of which includes making the gardens more kid friendly, such as special exhibits, events, etc.
If you watch their website from time to time, something might catch your eye.

Edwin, it's hard to say, the 'Ute' mother plant could be a century old or more.

They are indeed! That dwarf Colorado spruce looks great! Any chance of a closer view ? (Whenever you get a chance to go there again!) Thanks. T.

Nice video's Nate!
That Pinus flexilis 'Yellow' is a very special one, it could be one at my most wanted list ;0)

A closer pic of that dwarf Picea pungens is most welcome indeed, a mutation of this species is very rare!
May be it's a conical witchesbroom?
Why didn't Jerry gave a name to it (yet)?

Getting around to some of the other videos we took last spring.

Tunilla and Edwin, still working on that pic. I don't know if it has a name. As I understand, it's a seedling, possibly from broom seed.

Nate, thanks for the update and the 'Dove' video.
I watched the Picea pungens dwarf selection video several times and heard that Jerry mentioned that it was found as a mutation, so it's not a witches' broom seedling...

I'm getting more curious now to see a detailed pic of it ;0)

Nate,
don't forget, that the Warrior video was the first made in the conifering. You opened a new window for us! And invented the video-description way of plants.

Welcome!

Hey, Nate. Do you have any documentaries or info on the original Abies lasiocarpa 'Prickly Pete'? I heard that the original plant was a tall, narrow pillar, yet none of the plants I have seen exhibit this characteristic.
If you have any pictures of the original plant, I would be very happy to see them.
Thanks, Nate.
I enjoyed watching the videos as well!

Nate, Thanks for all these videos, I also watched them all and every time I see Jerry it reminds me my visit to him back in 2004.
Some day I hope to see you both and then we can visit the Denver Botanical gardens together :0)

Nate, great videos. I've watched all of them and enjoyed seeing them. It is so nice to document these wonderful stories on how some of the plants were found. Nice job.

Josh, Edwin, and Lady, glad you enjoyed.

Sam, here's the description I have on Prickly Pete. I don't have a pic at this time.
#6 - Prickly Pete - broom, fastigiate, tight vigorous, 20' up, 15" wide, 7' tall.

Quoted from COENOSIUM about Abies lasiocarpa 'Prickly Pete'

Although the parent of this selection was a columnar dwarf form of Rocky Mountain Fir, all of the plants propagated from it have been dense little globes growing less than 1" per year with blue-green foliage. We hope they will eventually grow like the parent plant, but more evaluation time is needed before determining its ultimate size and shape.

This is one of two Austrian pine brooms Jerry found on the BYU campus in Utah.
