Pictures of my 4 new conifers! ID's please!

karate626(7A Maryland)May 15, 2012

My uncle recently gave me 4 conifers on Mother's Day but does not know the ID for them. I am so excited! They are going in the ground today.

Conifer 1: is a round gold ball.

Conifer 2: blueish pine. Varying needle lengths.

Conifer 3: almost looks like a little bonsai! The smallest of the 4.

Conifer 4: my favorite one! Seems more treelike.

More pics available if needed! Thanks for looking.

These are guesses..
1. Chamaecyparis of some kind?
2. Pine of some kind? swiss stone??
3. Juniper of some kind, maybe a juniperus virginiana cultivar?
4. Cryptomeria - Maybe Black dragon?

cryptomeria

I agree with Edwin, the Crypto is o.k.
Sometimes sold as 'Lobbii'.

The others are also o.k. ;0)

It looks like the messenger disappaered, maybe she broke her foot while she was digging a plant hole...

Wow you guys are awesome! I'm planting these tomorrow so I'll have pics of them in the ground this weekend. They all seem healthy so I expect them to do great! My yard is pretty much devoid of evergreens so I know these will really enhance my yard :) Only problem is they all seem to need full sun.

Thanks!
