My uncle recently gave me 4 conifers on Mother's Day but does not know the ID for them. I am so excited! They are going in the ground today.

Conifer 1: is a round gold ball.

Conifer 2: blueish pine. Varying needle lengths.

I agree with Edwin, the Crypto is o.k.
Sometimes sold as 'Lobbii'.

The others are also o.k. ;0)

It looks like the messenger disappaered, maybe she broke her foot while she was digging a plant hole...

Wow you guys are awesome! I'm planting these tomorrow so I'll have pics of them in the ground this weekend. They all seem healthy so I expect them to do great! My yard is pretty much devoid of evergreens so I know these will really enhance my yard :) Only problem is they all seem to need full sun.

Thanks!
