Interesting Taxus sure you will find more specimens.

Sluce, I was waiting for the third pun! Anyway thank you for the pictures. I am suprised we do not see the weeping form more often in gardens. I bought the only one I have ever seen in a nursery. I always enjoy the pictures of your Globe trotting adventures. Jay

Is the weeping one Taxus baccata 'Dovastoniana'?

RE: morton arboretum (tour 4)

I weep also when working with my taxus. LOL. Nate, you are a hoot.

Love the photos. The trunk and that taxus is gorgeous.

I have one taxus and after looking at your photos, it eventually need to be cut down as I have it in a spot along the corner of my house and will soon hit the outcrop of siding. UGH. I need to do a bit more research before planting out any of my other conifers.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

They actually look great considering their size and that bark is way cool.

I love that Filifera, only who knows what all could be hiding in there. :) And I love Landis, that is a great conifer. Thanks for the great pictures.

Sluice...beautiful cultivars.

Thanks for spending the gas and then sharing your experience with me.

I have a cultivar called Picea glauca 'Morton Arboretum Weeping'.

Suppose it's related with this arboretum in some way?

RE: morton arboretum (tour 4)

Nate,

These are genuine finds.
If you want to see the first conifer cultivars since 1850-1940 of Europe, must visit the great american arboretums. The US Nat Arb and Bickelhaupt was earlier reported by Dax, now the Morton by you shows clearly, that these collections became living museums of the dawn of conifering.

Manymany thanks for your documentations.

If we are in need, must go to the States for cuttings... (:

tj, Cher, Dave, and Zsolt, you're comments are appreciated!

Dave, that sounds interesting. Might be a tie in there somewhere. ;)

Well, you're all so kind. Thank you very mulch.

Too cool, Nate - and thank you for the puns! Luckily taxus season is over with so we can laugh in peace.

Great pictures; I too really like the photo of the bark on the Taxus cuspidata 'Pendula' and the Pinus sylvestris 'Globosa Viridis' looks almost huggable.

Tour 4 was as much fun as tours 1-3; hope there are more to come.

Like many plants labelled Picea jezoensis,"Landis" are a cv of Picea glehnii.
