Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Many are similar/identical, but still neat to look at. One of my first 'pushing' conifers.

Picea glauca 'Sanders Blue'. 4-5 years old, nice blue tints to it, I'd classify it as a small dwarf.
Photobucket

'Humpty Dumpty'. Neat little mound, seems very slow.
Photobucket

'Daisy White'. Still showing strong colors, I expect a fade by about late June here in the Pacific Northwest.

Enjoy and share some of yours, I'll post almost daily here.

Sorry to say Will your 'Echiniformis' is a mariana...does anybody have the true 'Echiniformis in the States ??
Nice pics tho, keep em coming :0)


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Will, you have a nice assortment of Picea glauca cultivars.
Some scomments to some cultivar names:
'Sander's Blue':
Your's looks like an 'Arneson's Blue Variegated' with it's green and blue spots.
The true 'Sanders Blue' is completely blue but will revert regulary.

'Daisy White' must be written as 'Daisy's White'.

'Alberta Globe':
The one you show us isn't the right one and is the same as the 'Echiniformis' you showed us.
The true 'Alberta Globe' is a green globose form.

'Arneson's Blue Variegated':
The one you show us looks like a normal green 'Conica' because it doesn't have any blue spots which is the characteristic for the true 'Arneson's Blue Variegated'.
In my opinion this variety is a reverted 'Sander's Blue', 'Blue Wonder' or 'Haal'(aka 'Alberta Blue'), they all revert regulary.

'Echiniformis':
The one you show us is not the right one, it's a Picea mariana 'Nana' or simular clone.
This is the right one
Picea glauca 'Echiniformis'

I hope I helped you with this info.

Edwin, where does your Picea glauca Echiniformis come from ?


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Thanks again for the info fellas. To be honest, I'm glad it's mariana 'Nana', a plant I've looked for for a long time(and apparently had all along- lol). I do wonder if this plant is present in nurseries in the states. I have two from two different sources and they both appear to be Picea mariana.

Lots more today(it's raining, again):

Picea glauca 'Gnome'. Pretty darn slow growth.
Photobucket

'Goldilocks'. Going on it's third year. Heavily shaded as well.
Photobucket

'Jean's Dilly'
Photobucket

'Joseph Rys'
Photobucket

'Pixie'. Seems smaller then 'Gnome' or at least thinner.
Photobucket

'Palecek'
Photobucket

'Gold Tip'
Photobucket

'Rainbow's End'. Flushes bright green/gold later in Summer.(Will try and update).
Photobucket

'Pixie Dust'. Similarly flushes again with more color, very dense plant.
Photobucket

More then halfway through!

Clement, the 'Vanilla Ice' is very good, where does that come from ?


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Stephen, I'm surprised that you're not familiar with the 'Vanilla Ice', first named as 'Vanillaice' which is written in a bad English language.
It's found by Wiel as a mutation on a 'Daisy's White'.


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Edwin, as none of you guys in Holland have told me about the plant...how would I know ? :0)


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

"Palecek" sounds like it might be a Czech cultivar: the word means "small thumb", and should have an apostrophe over the 'c' (pronounced as 'cz', as in Czech).


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Jaro, I don't think I'm able to create those punctuations on U.S. keyboards?

Here's a few more, I'm searching about for the last handful...

Picea glauca 'Pendula'. My 'normal specimen. Wonderful, narrow weeping beauty. 6-7 years old?
Photobucket

'Pendula'. Either lost it's leader or never staked. Either way, it's neat looking.
Photobucket

'Hobbit'. Perfectly named. An awesome little globe.

Redwingconifer,
Picea glauca "Blue Planet" are a cv of Picea mariana =
Picea mariana "Blue Planet"

Spruce,
Are you sure of your Picea glauca "Aurea" ?? because it's probably Picea mariana "Aureovariegata" !

Clment


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

regarding Picea glauca or mariana 'Blue Planet- someone needs to get ahold of the folks at Iseli and find out what is going on with this plant. It is a fairly new introduction so I would think that tracing the plants origins would be fairly easy.


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

I had a talk with Don Howse once about 'Blue Planet.' If I remember correctly, he said it was found as a broom on Picea glauca 'Eichiniformis.' Of course we're all aware of the controversy surrounding 'Eichiniformis,' so there's little doubt that the same confusion carries over to 'Blue Planet.'

Lacking genetic info, just look at the plant. 'Echiniformis' and 'Blue Planet' look much more like mariana than glauca. Who's in charge of such things here?


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Both plants are definitely mariana, because the true 'Echiniformis is something completely different...you can blame the Dutch for the original mix up many years ago :0)))


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Yeah, blame it on the Dutch, but it wasn't me! ;o)
This happend way back before I knew what a conifer was...


 o
RE: Aurea or Aureovariegata

Are you sure of your Picea glauca "Aurea" ?? because it's probably Picea mariana "Aureovariegata" !
Hi Clment,
Thanks for this information. I bought it from Hulsdonk labelled as Picea glauca 'Aurea' but I do not know for sure, I'm afraid.
Do you believe Picea glauca 'Aurea' is unlikely because it does not exist or because of some confusion?
Richard


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

This is the Picea glauca 'Aurea' from the Hulsdonk garden centre.
In my opinion it's a Picea mariana 'Aureovariegata'.

Here is a link that might be useful: Picea glauca 'Aurea'

RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Hello Maria, welcome to this forum!
You showed us some nice photo's and with some of these I wasn't familiar.

Picea glauca var. albertiana 'W.B.' isn't the true name of this witchesbroom, it's
Picea glauca var. albertiana 'Hexenbesen' or 'H.B.' which is a shortening for this cultivar.
It's a witches'broom found by Uwe Horstmann from Germany and the cultivarname is translated into the English language as many German cultivars did.
This is the one at my Pinetum

Picea glauca 'Dendrofarma Aurea/ Gold'?


 o
RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

Maria, the true cultivarname is 'Dendrofarma Gold' which is found as a mutation on an 'Alberta Globe'.
It's found by the Dendrofarma Nursery in Poland.
Your's look like an 'Alberta Globe' now but will be yellow in Spring for a long time like this one.

I bought a conifer marked Picea abies Pendula at Home Depot. I am thinking that it might be mismarked because its needles are distinctly blue and resemble my Picea glauca Pendula in color, but the shape of the buds is more like Picea abies Pendula. Any tips on how to decide what it is?

RE: Picea glauca Photo Gallery 2010

The best tip ever is that you have to show us a photo, maybe then we can help you!
