There comes a time in our lives when we come face to face with an extraordinary plant and it brings tears to our eyes. That’s how I felt when I stood beside Pinus strobus ‘Mini Twists’….so beautiful! Here are some of the outstanding pines that I discovered at Iseli Nursery in Oregon last week. This genus of plants has so much texture. Some are soft and supple, others sharp and pokey. Colors range from all shades of green to yellow, gold and blue. Captivating conifers!
