yet so wonderfully awesome
What an incredible tree. It even looks like it has a waist, that's just beautiful!I didn't know about the weeping white spruce, but now I'm making more plans :). I was thinking of allowing the Norway to grow up about 5 ft. and then be trained to grow horizontally about 7 or 8 feet with support. The white, or two, would look nice close by. This is my latest baby. Mine is about 6 inches tall and the most adorable tree I've ever seen. It will only get about two feet tall and the needles turn a maroon color when the weather is cold. The picture doesn't do justice to it, the branches look more curly in person. The featured nursery that is selling in the link is charging way more than my local nursery. I bought mine for around $4 and I'd like to get more over time.Thank you for sharing your garden with us and for the little bit of fame with the post title.:)
Curly Tops is a cool tree. And Jennifer, you live in conifer heaven.
Also Jennifer, check out some of the firs. They produce the mosy awesome cone displays and are beautiful trees. It is the one group of conifers I wish I could grow here but cannot.
I guess I take for granted, to some degree, what is all around me. We have a ton of cedar, fir and pine here. Our land backs up to Weyerhauser forest. We also have hemlock which I really like...and yew.We have 6 firs growing in our front property that we don't want there. We may more them or use them as Christmas trees in the years to come. One thing I love about your region is the colors in the leaves in the fall. We don't usually have cold enough autumns to produce the bright colors and the conifers tend to take over. Our area is different from Oregon or even the rest of Western WA. We live in rainforest regions with a shorter growing season and a LOT more rain. I'm learning to love it again...it just take a while to adjust to new climates and surroundings. Can you grow cedar? The deodar is beautiful! Here is a picture of a little stand of them. Our neighbor has a bunch of these sleepy trees and one that looks just like it's out of a fairy tale with it's broad base and it's tippy top toward the house.
Oops, that deodar is a weeping deodar cedar..I forgot the weeping part.
Jennifer, I have this Deodora Cedarhttp://www.bluesterling.com/deodara%20silver%20mist.htmThis is another group of trees with many beautiful selections.
Oooohh, so pretty!! It's fun to see all of these trees and to appreciate the diversity of creation.
