So I continue to be a little behind but I have more photos of some conifers I'm growing that I can share.

Tsuga canadensis 'Ashfield Weeper' - A strongly weeping, beautiful, fast growing hemlock.

Cedrus libani var. atlantica 'Uwe' - oooh vey, a very cool little plant. Hard to grow sometimes but my two specimens are alive still three years in.
Photobucket

Picea pungens 'Blue Fingers' - New to me, source: Conifer Kingdom.
Photobucket

Pinus mugo(x densiflora I believe) 'Edsal Wood' - Distinct and slow growing.
Photobucket

Pseudotsuga menziesii 'Seattle Mountain' - My first inexplicably died in a few months for no apparent reason - boy is it a lovely color.
Photobucket

Pseudotsuga menziesii 'El Dorado' - A new golden offering from Conifer Kingdom - a shockingly bright cultivar, even with our cool, cloudy Springs it is showing great potential.
Photobucket

Picea pungens 'Blaukissen' - Superb color and shape, compares favorably to 'Blue Pearl' I think I prefer this plant.
Photobucket

Tsuga canadensis 'Everitt's Golden' - A marvelous gold even with part shade.
Photobucket

Abies koreana 'Brevifolia' - I love the silvery, lush foliage of the korean fir. This one looks somewhat upright/formal.
Photobucket

Acer palmatum 'Jewels' - A Stanley and Sons gem - this little lady grows an inch or two a year, very very compact. Larry said this tree was in the neighborhood of 10-12 years old(and it's under 40 centimeters/15 inches).
Photobucket

A landscape shot, the corner of the driveway. The maples provide amazing color 9 months of the year.

That Picea pungens 'Blaukissen' sure is a nice specimen. Where did you find that one?

That's the one, Will, a tribute to my favorite literature. Hobbiton is the neighborhood of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins of J.R.R. Tolkien/Lord of the Rings Lore. It's a fantasy land where things are small and people love plants of all types. Both seem very appropriate especially considering I have plants named 'Hobbit', 'Elf', 'Pixie', 'Gnome' and plenty of dwarves amongst my denizens.

Picea pungens 'Blaukissen' was a Coenosium Gardens purchase about 3 years ago. I don't know if he stocks it still or not.

Finally, a correction, as the duplicate image is:

Pinus mugo(x densiflora I believe) 'Edsal Wood' - Distinct and slow growing.

Beautiful plants, as always Will. I could look at pictures of your conifers forever.
