Thanks buddy...I responded to the old post but it didn't bump it up. Sup with that?

Now don't go delelting these pics, lol.

How do these compare to 'Golden Ghost'? I do have that one so perhaps thats where I stop. I bet it has the same winter burn. The one I have doesn't have any needles except for this year's growth.

GGhost is better... once established.. it doesnt burn ...

Mystery solved...'Golden Ghost' is the superior cultivar for the midwest. I know Dax has an awesome one as well.

I'll post my little one next year after he pushes new growth.

Yes your 2009 post only has 13 replies...its the #2 hit on google (today) if you search Pinus densiflora Burkes Red Variegated

I noticed this year that the interior needles of my Burkes Variegated are dark green w/o variegation while the Cesarini is variegated all the way back. Have you seen this in your plants?
