Ken, this time you got the right plant ;0)

I'm wondering why it lost so many needles, it looks so bold.
I see only needles from last year growth...

This is a 1 year old graft of the same cultivar which I've at my nursery.

wow.. even a blind nut can find a squirrel once in a while.. lol ...

first pic.. whole dead branches..

its had a hard life ...

i was hoping for a pic of a more mature specimen.. to see if it is supposed to be sparse.. like many of the parv's ....

Perhaps shock, but every P. parviflora I planted lost ALL but its current year needles.

No other Pinus species did this except parviflora.

Whaas, I think Dax was saying something similar recently.
Besides,I don't find parvifloras particularly hailstone-proof. Anyone suffered from hailstorms? T.

Here are a couple that I'm growing.

This was growing three feet from the one in the above photo until I moved it about a month ago.
