I have four types of conifers given to me that I am not sure exactly what they are and one that I'd appreciate more info on. Can anyone help me ID?

Unknown pinus #1 has multi-colored needles:










Unknown pinus #2 has more rigid needles:




Unknown picea? #3:










Unknown picea graft #4:










Finally, a labelled plant, but I'm wondering if anyone can give me details on growth/habit/etc?









Thank you!!

"Picea orientalis 'pendula' - Weeping Japanese Spruce"

That's funny! If by Japanese, they meant the Caucasus Mountains of Russia and Georgia, then they got it about right.

Isn't the island of Japan in Russia? ;) I was guessing that common name was wrong... Sounds like someone was geographically challenged. As an aside, the plants above are all from different growers around Portland, OR.

#1 is one of the white pines.

#2 is a Scots Pine Pinus sylvestris cultivar.

#3 is a Caucasian Spruce Picea orientalis cultivar.

Thanks, all. I will report back if the colors change to help ID further. For now, I appreciate the identification so I can research growth habit.
