Picea IDs Hi, I have images of a couple of interesting species (?) of Picea that I would like opinions on. The first I believe is P. smithiana, as the cones are very large (20cm in length) and all other aspects seem to point to that ID. Except one â€“ and that is the unusual dentition at the end of the cone scales. I believe that P. smithiana is supposed to have rounded scales. Any ideas? This single specimen at VanDusen (apparently not in any of the accession records) is an extremely attractive tree and it would be great to lock down the correct name. Very near the first tree is another Picea that seems a little beyond the average (these trees were planted randomly in a holding area and have since matured). The cones (male and female appearing in May) are bright pink to red and almost cover the tree. The mature female cones are about 8cm in length and tan coloured. I realize that this is limited information, but I donâ€™t have specimens in front of me, so I canâ€™t give you proper measurements on needles, male cones, buds etc., but I was hoping someone more familiar with conifers might recognize them right away. If not, I hope to get out to the garden sometime soon, armed with a good key and a tape measure.
