Broom Universe 181 - Etzelstorfer Collection AUT 23

Franz Etzelstorfer of Austria is another giant of european conifering. His collection of about 5000 cultivars and his Life Monument of 540 own brooms is a world class.

I visited him 4 times in the last two years, but still not ready with the documentation.

    Wow that is broom heaven. The Pinus contorta 'JM' is very special indeed.

    Agreed, the broom farm is really something. I have just learned something about the effective use of space in the garden.

    What does he do with all of them? Are they used as stock plants or for B & B, or is it just a collection?

    I really like the heldreichiis, especially Nileas H 24.

    We were speaking about the collection with Franz. After 10-15 years its time to select the best ones for bigger propagation and intro to the market. I hope the best.

    But these people like Franz are collectors, discoverers, who like the mountains, live for discovering. Great industry propagation is an other job.
