Re: now CES gardens was- and still sort of is- Pinus stobus'Contorta'


I don't think your spot will be ideal forever, but it could stay there awhile and then you could move it later. I'd have to go to the gardens to check the current height of ours, but I'm guessing it's getting big. We bought it about 2000 in Michigan with some other nice evergreens to start a conifer garden. After a couple years we had to move the entire planting to another location where they've been since. This garden has looked fine the past few years, but all of a sudden it appears way overcrowded and will need thinning. I think that once these trees get esablished after a few years they really start growing. I don't believe 'Contorta' will ever get as big as as an ordinary White Pine, but I found one site that reported "over 40 feet".

We do have lots of plants, about 1300 varieties in a smallish area.

Just how big is your CES display garden Kitty.... you sure have a zillion and one plants there!

Since we are similiar in climate and conditions, what kinda growth rate
does it have? After reading a few things about it, I am thinking that
spot is not going to be big enough for it ... sigh.

We have a Pinus strobus 'Contorta' in our Conifer Garden at CES display
gardens. Very nice. We also have Bhutan Pine, Pinus wallichiana 'Zebrina'
and a Dragon-Eye Pine, Pinus densiflora 'Oculus-draconis', that I think
you'd dig.
