    Hi again:
    Could someone please identify the attached photo. During the cold stratification period on some Stewartia seeds this sprouted. It's no Stewartia but I would love to know what seed got mixed in with the Stewartia. Thank you.

    Even kind of looks like Thujopsis dolabrata , except not sure about the leaf underside.

    Hi:
    Thank you so much for your help in Id'ing the plant. Indeed it matches the description for Platycladus Orientalis. I'll try to find the warmest part of my land to plant it out. Sounds like it could grow fairly large. Also says zone 6 to 11 and I'm in zone 5 so will try to protect it.
