Picea orientalis 'Reynolds'

Bought simply as 'Reynolds' so possibly one of the pair (Reynolds #1 & Reynolds #2) that are very rare. Easily one of my most cherished specimens.

Hi Ron

From Wiki;

Lammas growth, also called Lammas leaves, Lammas flush, second shoots, or summer shoots, is a season of renewed growth in some trees in temperate regions put on in July and August (if in the northern hemisphere, January and February if in the southern), that is around Lammas day, August 1, which is the Celtic harvest festival.
