Hey Folks!

Nice pictures. Pinus sylvestris is very common around but I like it. Let me introduce u with my sylvestris broom which were found by me and my bride this year.

1/2012 little broom, it was 15 cm. It was found in shade. It looks like this right now:

and the pine:

2/2012. Around 40-50 cm and it was in much better shape:

And the grafts:

I did 6 grafts on this , only one of them failed. I plan this will be the motherplant of the broom:

And I take care a variegated sylv. brench mutation, too. It is still a young plant. Need more time to see what is it like. That will be an other topic.

Pinus sylvestris 'Nisbet's Gold': A fast grower, this one has great, bright winter color. I don't think I have a picture of it on my computer though.

Great stuff, Edwin. Good blue color on the last two.

That 'Bexel Witch's Broom Seedling' deserves a proper name!

Sammy boy, thanks for your first comment about the last two pics...
BUT
Stop thinking STUPID about giving conifers a proper name.
'Bexel Witches' Broom Seedling' is shortened in 'Bexel W.B. Sdl.' and under this name it's spread for several years.
This cultivar name is a proper name allready, all the info you need is in this cultivar name: the finder and how it arose.
You are just thinking like all the other American nurseriemen who renamed a lot of plants and created a big mess which I'm trying to solve regulary!!!
Please don't think like them no longer, especialy as a lot of members here see you as the new promising American conifer specialist...
Thank you very much!

Okay, Edwin. I simply took this name as a placeholder or temporary name such as witch's broom #3 or [dwarf witch's broom seedling].

In this case, Bexel must refer to the founder's name, and therefore does not need a renaming after all. Thank you for this helpful advice.
And just so you know, I would NEVER imagine renaming a cultivar that I did not discover. :-)

David, some comments to your nice pics:

'Woltinss Gold'
Must be written as 'Woltings Gold'

'Nisbet Aurea'
Must be written as 'Aurea Nisbet'

Your last pic isn't a pine at all, it's a flat growing Pseudotsuga menziesii cultivar...

Rispetto, your 'Bialogon' looks a bit greenish, is it standing in much shade?
This is how it looks like when it's standing in full sun.

Edwin, just for clarification aren't 'Nisbet Aurea', 'Aurea Nisbet', 'Nisbet's Aurea', 'Nirbeth's Aurea' all plain right wrong or illegitimate because of the Latin nomenclature rule?

I thought it is simply 'Nisbet's Gold'. This is per Mr.Fincham.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
coniferjoy(z7 The Netherlands)

In fact Bob Fincham is right...
This is because this cultivar was found in 1986 and it is not alowed to use Latin cultivar names after 1959.
But the original name given by the founder was 'Aurea Nisbet' and can not be changed by anyone else.
So 'Aurea Nisbet' it is.
Al the others you mentiond are just aka's or misspellings...

Wow this thread is great to roll down through again.

If that's taken recently Sam then my 'Gold Coin' isn't going to be a glower again compared, though otherwise healthy oddly.

Super blue sylvestris Ireena, that certainly needs to become a 'known'.

Definitely plenty of sun Sam, check the pic of mine higher up the thread. It was pretty uniformly yellow when I bought it but now it stays more aqua blue. Maybe in time...

That 'Janssen Witch' is glorious Starterdude. Thanks

'Fairy Nuff' sounds like "fair enough"... intentional? In any case, it has a nice colour and form.

Damn, Sam & Blue, you're both sylvestrisizing me to bit's!

I'm looking at thousands of pines and piceas from the truck as I pass in the hope of seeing WB's, walked around a huge mature mugo range in Wales and have never seen a single one.

There is a big sylvestris WB on the Tiverton to Barnstable road though that I saw a couple of years back. Very prominent.

I'm adding my picture of Nisbet Aurea to this list, just because it might be helpful...it was labeled as Nirbeth's, so it took a bit of learning to figure out the correct name. Thank you for the clarification, ConiferJoy!
Plus, it can't hurt to bump this super thread of pics and info!
