Sciadopitys verticillata cultivars.

magnolavastic(z6/7 Norway)August 3, 2008

I am growing some 40 cultivars of Sciadopitys verticillata in Norway. Precipitation 1800 mm, years (average). 6,3 C. Extremes: -20 C - + 34 C.

I have been collecting plants for 40 years. Especially conifers and magnolias.

Especially interested in pendulous forms of Sciadopitys, and multitepaled forms from Oyama section; magnolias.

Hi magnolavastic-

There is a pendulous form that is S.v. 'Hinge Form' that seems very nice. You have quite an impressive collection of Sciadopitys. I only have 5, but my 2 favorites are 'picola' and 'sternschnuppe I'. I was suprised to see that you rated 'Mecki' so highly(5 stars). From the photos that I have seen- it seems rather plain. I will have to reconsider for a possible future purchase.

I am very interested in your decsription of 'Ann Haddow'- is this a dwarf or full size cultivar?

Do you know Dennis Dodge/Bethlehem Nursery? He has an extensive inventory of Sciadopitys. I put a link to his website below.

It would be nice if you could post some photos of your cultivars. Many of the forms in your colection are rarely seen by anyone except diehard enthusiasts.

thanks, shannon

Sciadopitys verticillata 'Ann Haddow' is a full size Sciadopitys. 'H�ngeform' (in the US 'Hingeform') is a showy form as the shoots is pendulous, not the whole tree. Easy to grow. I know the Bethlehem Nursery. My old 'Sternschnuppe' is between 3 and 4 m tall now. One of the largest available.
