    That's a cool little piece of info about seedlings, Dax. Do you suppose that applies to the other silverback types, such as Silver Show?

    By the way, your voluminous output of photos is much appreciated. And what a lovely cone photo!

    Here is our little Abies koreana 'Horstmann's Silberlocke'. I like how the needles curl to show their bright blue undersides. It almost glows this time of year. Very slow growing in our area and we intend to keep it pruned so that it does not outgrow it's spot in the landscape.
