Never saw it or heard about this cultivar.
What's twisted, it's needles or branches, may be both?
From where did you become it and can you show us a pic of your's?
Thanks!

Thanks for this pic.
Julien, is this the same one as I received from you as a bigger specimen?
Unfortunately it died because of our very strange Dutch winter...

Interesting info and picture. About 25 years ago I received a grafted plant called 'Spiralez' from Mr Wittboldt-Müller of Germany. This plant had twisted needles when received, but lost its habit after 1-2 years. Strange! Now I have grafted 'Twister'. I wonder how it will perform. Now I am looking for Sciadopitys v. 'Fasciation'. I found it here (view below), but no chance to get it from this wholesale source. Any idea where material may be obtained?http://www.buchholznursery.com/plant_page.html?id=26dd9c

Olav,
'Fasciation' is a synonym of 'Cristata' and 'Cristate Form' that are listed by few producer.
I ask since two years to Wiel Linssen for have one small, he has a old plant in the garden.

'Explosion' I have got (on own roots). Seems hardy here.
Interesting info about 'Cristata'.

Sugi - I acquired two of them last year in a trade. Do you have anything to trade. Shoot me an email.

I got 'Twister' yesterday. It has 17 cm long needles which are very deep green. The needles are very thick. A nice plant.
