Dog Days of Summer

9 years ago

Summer's heat and humidity are in full force here. I have been struggling to keep the fungus from overtaking a dozen or so of my conifers--mostly species which come from the Rockies. I plan to begin focusing on collecting mostly native cultivars which can handle the high humidity and hot nights.

These are some pictures I took after a shot of rain we received this evening.

Pinus strobus 'Bennett O.D.'

Picea abies 'Aurea Jakobsen': I root pruned it early this spring right when the ground thawed, as a result this year's growth is stunted.

Picea abies 'Tufty'

Thuja occidentalis 'Yellow Ribbon'

Abies balsamea var. phanerolepis âÂÂBear SwampâÂÂ

Pinus flexilis 'W.B.'

Pinus strobus 'Wiggles'

Picea glauca 'Ducharme'

Tsuga canadensis 'Cole'

Abies balsamea 'Gunflint Trail'

Abies lasiocarpa 'Martha's Vineyard'

Larix kaempferi 'Peve Tunnis': I love its powder blue foliage

Picea x mariorika 'Machala'

Metasequoia glyptostroboides 'Nitschke Cream'

Thanks for looking!
