Picea orientalis photo gallery 2011

I'm back from a long vacation and plenty of plants grew like weeds when I was gone!

Last year's gallery had some great cultivars, I have some new photos to share and I hope you do too! Please share any you'd like, new, old, big or small.

Here's a few of mine to start:

'Iseli Seedling'. A fantastic plant, grows a couple inches a year and beautifully gold all year with no burn! I've tried(poorly) to contrast it with a couple petunas with black flowers. Maybe something more to see here once the weather warms up(we're still in the 60s most days!)

'Connecticut Turnpike'. Dwarfish and needs a move soon.
Photobucket

'Professor Langner'. Very slow growing, less then an inch a year.

Iseli Seedling is Awesome.

A few more today as I am busy outside working on slug control, LOTS of staking and watering.

Picea orientalis 'Pendula'. Similar to 'Nutans' though now it seems to be fully prostrate. It started as planted straight up in the air three years ago. Another plant I'll probably have to stake. Has some 'bluish' hints occasionally.
Photobucket

And speaking of 'Nutans'. What a monster plant, also was planted straight up, now oozing all over the garden like 'The Thing', ala John Carpenter.
Photobucket

'Early Gold'. Bright gold new tips for a couple of months before turning dark green. This specimen is in almost FULL shade. Amazing plant.
Photobucket

'Tom Thumb Gold'. A beauty of a miniature, an inch a year but benefits from a few hours shade in the afternoon. I have a 'Buddha'(just visible to the left) that protects both my garden and this specimen once the blazing relentless sun arrives here in July.
Photobucket

Lots more when I have time. Let's see some of your old school plants Steven/Clement/Henk. I know you have some monsters to contribute here. lol

Will, for a better shape it's better to stake the 'Pendula' and the 'Nutans' for a year or 2 and then let them grow free.
Your 'Pendula' grows now as a flatgrower, while staked it will let hang it's side branches which is the typical characteristic of this cultivar.
The same is for the 'Nutans' which is a semi weeper.

Guys, are those 'Skylands' intriguing because Clement grew those himself?


 o
RE: Picea orientalis photo gallery 2011

Seedlings of 2001, american seeds from American conifers seeds exchange.

RE: Picea orientalis photo gallery 2011

They must be dwarfs, 10 years old and only 40-50 cm high?
It's time for some graftings Clement! ;0)

RE: Picea orientalis photo gallery 2011

A few more today while it's cloudy and I have time.

'Nana Compacta'. A not well known cultivar it seems, very shrubby with dense green growth. About 15 years old and 3 feet wide.
Photobucket

'Silver Seedling'. Almost full shae, still sheens of silver and green. Will burn in full sun, so half sun or less is probably ideal. Slow growing, eventually puts up a leader I believe.
Photobucket

'Daureas'. Gold like this for months and then more subtle green-gold the rest of the year. Many plants in my garden will be moved, these three will present a tough decision.
