MY Conifer Kingdom conifers

davesconifersApril 4, 2014

This is a great company to do business with. Their conifers are first rate.

Several months ago I entered their photo contest posted on their web site and won $200.00.

I selected Picea pungens 'Ruby Teardrops' for my garden because of its unique characteristic of fabulous ruby-colored cones in the spring.

To my surprise they added a thank you conifer free of charge.

Picea omorika 'Aurea'

Those guys seem to add free conifers to many orders.

You'll get a nice buck from that 'Aurea' if you sell it on ebay since you already have a large specimen. That's a 25 dollar plus, tree.

Have a great day,

Dax

Dax,

I don't have omorika 'Aurea'

I think it's going to be a keeper.

You sure do have a beautiful backyard, Dave. I have admired it many times here on Gardenweb. Nice photo, too! What a great story!

Is the Ruby Teardrops quite green in person? Not as blue as Montgomery? It looks green to me in the picture, except for a few braches on the top right of the picture.
