Nice plant! Is that a reflection in the back or a similar plant?

Fantastic! Thanks for this post.
As I've said many times, I'm a sucker for variegated conifers, so I too am curious about what that other lovely pine in the background is... strobus 'Gold Painted'?

By the way, I may need you to send me scions once I get more into grafting. What do ya say?

Awesome tree, Ken. One of my favorites and on the top of my wish list.

Ken, very nice specimen, the biggest one I ever saw of this cultivar.

Sam, the shortening P.r. 'S.V'. stands for Pinus reflexa 'Southbridge Variegated' which is the original name Joe Stupka gave when he found it as a variegated tree in a parking lot.

Sometimes it's shortened into 'Southbridge' which is incorrect...

Fantastic pictures. Really great looking conifer. What is that other one everyone is asking about?

Euell Gibbons where are you?

Heck Ken, I've had a hard time convincing anyone to try Resin's ID trick.

Very nice tree, BTW.
