Pinus x schwerinii 'Wiethorst' cone (fall 2011)
Pinus x schwerinii 'Wiethorst' cone (spring 2010)
chilly here this morning!
I see many yellow needles in the first pic -- do you get a lot of foliage loss every year ?
....just wondering if that's normal, as I also have a small plant.
Not sure. These were grafted and planted out in spring 2010, and then tranplanted in spring 2011.
The yellow needles may be due to the plant not being settled in yet, but that's speculation on my part.
How is your plant doing?
Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Pendulum' this am at 3F (-16C).
Thanks, I will only find out next spring.... the amount of foliage shed seemed a bit unusual though.
either way its a fabulous looking cone!
Sequoiadendron giganteum 'Pendulum' is gorgeous! Especially with the snow cover like that.
Yes, the cold is beginning to set in. UGH. Nice to see I am warmer than you. :)
7 below here this morning, 13 below with the windchill. 25 for a high is actually looking pretty good today!
A lot of conifers seem to fry a bit when getting settled here. I think it's the elevation and ample sunshine we get.
Love the pics. The baby Wiethorst cones are awesome.
Hi folks! My young 'Wiethorst' got smashed by the dogs as they were storming out of the house one day, only a few weeks after I happily planted it! All that's left is a small stump with two puny little sidebranches attached to it. At this stage it's impossible to tell if these belong to the graft or the understock.
Hope you all manage to keep warm ! T.
PS: Super Sequoiadendron by the way!
