A Few New Plantings

Not many, enjoy though. Dax

Pinus mugo 'Carl Fricard' near the drive. I forgot about this guy the last time I posted.

Picea pungens 'MPH Mamut Torony' looking into the sun

Picea pungens 'MPH Mamut Torony' sun behind

(Fagus x moesiaca x F.sylvatica 'Atropurpurea') 'Prince of Darkness' My good friend Guy Sternberg is the breeder of this beech. It contains the hardiness of Asian beech x European beech. Spring is deep purple as well as into mid-summer then it reverts green. Plant is upright and twisting & pendulous:

Picea abies 'Golden Beskid'

Picea engelmanniii 'Warrior'

Abies concolor 'Bedon' - like 'Winter Gold' but better I was told.

Thanks severside, I appreciate the compliment. I'm a serious collector, indeed. Been at this going on 11 years. Started as a spectator.

I just love the images you folks share. Thank you for posting! :) It makes me wish I had a larger yard. 1/4th an acre just isn't large enough! I cannot wait till we move to the farm, then I'll have acres and acres to play with. :D Once hubby retires from the military in 8 yrs I'll be able to dive right in!

I plan on sipping a drink with you in the shade of 'MPH Mamut Torony' in about 30 years. Look forward to getting your way soon

You've got my excited Dax! Love the engelmannii. Like Tiny, I wish I had more space, not much mind you because 10 acres or something would be so hard to maintain, but like a half acre more, I would be thrilled. I look forward to some plant exchanges. I gathered the cone flower 'Hot Pupaya' and a handful of others, bagged 'em up and should have that, those two golden seedlings and my collection DVD headed out Monday.

The 'Golden Beskid' looks good, will be interesting to see how it does over the next year.
