Helping you out by starting a few galleries, Will.
Pinus sylvestris 'Cerik'
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.
Pinus sylvestris 'Bexel W.B. Sdl.'
Pinus sylvestris 'Filip's Blue Globe'
Pinus sylvestris 'Frensham'
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...
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!
Pinus sylvestris 'Hillside Creeper'
Pinus sylvestris 'Jeremy'
Zsolti, the container garden looks great. Nice broom too!
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. :-)
My favorite Moseri (stanley & sons)
Woltinss Gold (Whistling Gardens)
Nisbet Aurea (stanleys)
Albyn Prostrata (stanley)
David, some comments to your nice pics:
Must be written as 'Woltings Gold'
Must be written as 'Aurea Nisbet'
Your last pic isn't a pine at all, it's a flat growing Pseudotsuga menziesii cultivar...
Pinus sylvestris 'Oedegard'
Found by Mr. Oedegard from Danmark in a forest in his neighbourhood.
Wow! Those pines absolutely light up your nursery!
Pinus sylvestris 'Chantry Blue' (Ebay)
Pinus sylvestris 'Gold Coin' (Holden Clough Nursery)
Pinus sylvestris 'Westonbirt' (Evergreen Conifer Centre - Defunct)
Pinus sylvestris 'Frensham' (Evergreen Conifer Centre - Defunct)
One of the finest witches' broom seedlings and in the 30 year old age range.
Pinus sylvestris 'Heartland Memory'
Grown by Randy Dykstra.
Dax, that's a real beauty!
1 meter x 1 meter in 30 years. I'm going to ask for scions next winter.
Dax, that's a very good idea! ;0)
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.
Pinus sylvestris 'Bialogon'
thanks coniferjoy will change took off tags don't how they could be that wrong.
Edwin, you're right. Next year it will have 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.
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...
Pinus sylvestris "Vimperk"
Pinus sylvestris "Straver"
A brandnew witches' broom, found by a good friend of mine:
Pinus sylvestris 'Strong Hollander Broom'
Great cultivars everyone! My best in show goes to Pinus sylvestris 'Filip's Blue Globe'.
Pinus sylvestris 'Lodge Hill' fairly common.
Labeled as 'Kumann', but I cannot find any info about it.
Rispetto, It's Pinus sylvestris 'Koemann'.
He also found a Picea omorika witches' broom which he named 'Koemann'...
This thread is so awesome. I spent some 30 minutes at work just staring at some of these, wishing I had twenty acres! :)
Keep them coming, if you can.
Pinus sylvestris 'Doone Valley'
Pinus sylvestris 'Westonbirt'
'Hillside Creeper' among various heaths and heathers (Erica and Calluna)
Pinus sylvestris 'Cerik' One of several witch's brooms discovered in Sweden. Very small needles with a low, spreading form.
a nice crop of Pinus sylvestris 'Aurea' at Conifer Kingdom (see link)
Here is a link that might be useful: Conifer Kingdom
Unknown(for now), weeping, light blue-silver, strangely growing from Estonia ...
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'.

Severn, I believe full sun is a key part of the winter coloring... Is yours in shade?
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
Perhaps the acidity of your soil is too low, severn.. I'm out of ideas now.
Is there anything like 'Oedegard' in the US? That is a very striking tree.
unprofessional, I don't think so...
Bob Fincham of Coenosium Gardens does have 'Candlelight' listed which is a simular plant.
Maybe you can ask him.
I love that 'Green Flare ' Sam!
The orange-brown buds really make a nice contrast in my opinion.
'Little Ann' is known for its resinous buds in the winter
Pinus sylvestris 'Fairy Nuff' - a John Proudfoot introduction.
There are so many choice Pinus sylvestris cultivars!
'Fairy Nuff' sounds like "fair enough"... intentional? In any case, it has a nice colour and form.
Yes Sam, the name was intentional, a take on 'fair enough' as you say ..
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!
