Had to go look in the database at that one.

Really an interesting plant. Looks like it grew lots from original plant

Hurray! Hurray!

Beautiful Paul!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I've been wanting a Chief Joseph, but can't stomach paying $300 for a 2' tall tree.

Let me guess...The yellow one costs a lot of money. That's the one I wanted. I can pick out an expensive plant from a mile away. The color of it is just awesome though.

Clint - Yea, that's the Chief Joseph. A LGS here has 3 trees about 2' tall and each one I believe is $299.99.

Ouch.

LOL. Greg - Spring Hill has it for $79.99 I think, but I don't trust ordering these from them.

Greg - No, you just have to read the description:

" Pinus contorta var. latifolia ‘Chief Joseph’ ; 4" pot. " - Tiny 4" pot. Probably no more than 2-3" tall. http://www.springhillnursery.com/chief-joseph-lodgepole-pine...

The ones at the LGS are about 2-2.5 feet tall & actually look like trees like the photo. That's why the ridiculous price.

Ok got it, yes that makes a big difference! I saw these for the first time a year ago and then in Feb at the NWflower and garden show. They are striking!
Toni, are these your little peepers or just a cute photo?? (in other words do you keep chickens??) Big Grin

Are they for cooler zones? I know I read some place that they can't take a lot of sun.

Clint - Yes, they're for cooler zones. Most pine trees don't like zone 8 and higher. One of the few cool things we colder zones can have!! :)

Greg - Yes, those are my chickens. Those are my Buff Orpingtons. Check out my thread on them here:
