Nice frosty weather you got Dax, here in the Netherlands it's nothing then rain!

Can you tell us something about the Juniperus virginiana 'Taylor' and 'Lebrotni'?
Thanks!

Is that your new shed/barn along the north side of the driveway? - I don't recall that being there on our last visit

That's my neighbors, Marshall. He keeps a little dune buggy in there and his property is shifting toward a trend of farm animals - next year. That blue box is a place for them to get a drink, year round. That guy's a true country boy... a bit younger than I.

Hi Edwin, I am familiar with The Netherlands weather. I once spent December thru mid-March in Amsterdam. The Heineken Brewery was something on my daily to accomplish, list. :0)

Juniperus virginiana Lebrotni: a cutting I received about six years ago that was about as tall as 1/2 a pencil, and as skinny. When I asked the guy about any info. he said only 'I can't tell you my source' ;0)

Juniperus virginiana Taylor is a University of Nebraska USA introduction that is medium-green and has the same overall shape as Thuja occidentalis Malonyana or, Calocedrus decurrens. I believe it will be 1M across at the base when 10M tall. It grows at least 1' per year but not much more.

Here's the link for Taylor... gifts from Marshall, actually.

Kindest Regards,

Dax

The Proof:

I think I was there twice that day. The tour was five guilders then (1995) and afterwards you could drink as much Heineken as you could for 1/2 of an hour.

Loved it.

Thanks for the 'rounds' (1&2) Cheers! T.
