Hey all,

Here are some photos from the garden today,

Juniperus squamata 'Loderi' makes a nice foundation planting. Grows 3-4"/yr.

Close-up of the foliage:

Picea abies 'Malena'

Photobucket

Picea abies 'Jana'. Another P. abies broom.

Photobucket

Abies koreana 'Gait', its fourth year in the ground. Last year it put out 4 cones. Sure wish I'd removed them, since this' year's growth is fairly insignificant.

Photobucket

Pinus nigra 'Black prince'

Photobucket

Picea abies 'Hillside upright'

Photobucket

And I can't resist including a maple. Acer buergerianum 'Miyasama Yatsubusa'

Photobucket

Loving them, Alex! Especially the Abies koreana 'Gait' Just lovely!

I've left the cone spindles on like that on my 'Gait' and the new growth is fine. It could be other factors inhibiting yours.

You Pinus nigra 'Black Prince' is certainly tight and polite. Great specimen.

That Acer buergerianum 'Miyasama Yatsubusa' steals the show. Nice sized specimen. I just have a little baby in a protected site to how he does.

Don't keep those maples from us. I see a bunch hiding in the pics. Looks like a nice paperbark next to the trident too!

Thanks for the pictures. I really like the Acer buergerianum 'Miyasama Yatsubusa' as well. Glad to see it is doing well.

Thanks GH, Severnside, whaas and Gary. Yes Miyasama Yatsubusa is a favorite, trouble-free and evidently happy here. Good eye, whaas, that is indeed a griseum to its left.

Thanks everyone for looking.

Alex, nice pics, I like both the Picea abies brooms very much.

Please rename Juniperus squamata 'Loderi'
into
Juniperus pingii 'Loderi'

Also please write cultivar names with capital marks.
not 'Black prince',
but 'Black Prince'
Thanks! :0)

Thanks Edwin, I'll make note of your corrections.

Do you have any information about Juniperus pingii 'Loderi', this name is new to me. Is this a case where the whole species is reclassified as happened to nootkatensis, or was it a case of mistaken species identity?

RE: mid-June conifers

Great shots. Love 'Malena', it looks very compact and happy. Ditto 'Black Prince' - do you candle prune this?

Also I'll agree, Acer buergerianum 'Miyasama Yatsubusa' is wonderfully shaped and sized, a winner for sure.

Alex, the species experts found out that some Juniperus squamata cultivars didn't belong to this species.
One of those is the 'Loderi'.
Other cultivars that were renamed from J. squamata to J. pingii are 'Glassell', 'Pygmaea', 'Prostrata'
and 'Wilsonii'.
'Blue Star, 'Blue Carpet', 'Holger' and some others are still under J. squamata.

Nice! The Loderi looks very lush!

RE: mid-June conifers

Thanks, Will, Edwin and Sluice.

Will, 'Black Prince' grows in this form naturally, I have not pruned it.

Edwin, thanks for the interesting information, I had not heard of this til now. Your help keeping cultivar names accurate is much appreciated.

Alex
