I had the long awaited opportunity to visit Iseli Nursery in Oregon this week. It was incredible! The attention to detail and design of the display garden was impressive with its collection of rare and beautiful conifers. The texture, color and movement created with these wonderful plants will turn you into a conifer lover quickly, without one look back at those broadleaf angiosperms. I was so excited to see many of the plants that I know, only in their mature state. I have been wanting to see how they fill out and how they grow up. I was attracted to some of the conifers instantly. It was love at first sight when I laid my eyes on Pinus strobus ‘mini twists’. Those tangled locks, I just wanted to throw my arms around it! I’ll be taking a closer look at some of these amazing conifers in future posts, which ones are your favorites?

I love the monster! (Is it Nessy from Loch Ness, on her holidays?!) But the two weeping conifers (one large, one small) behind Nessy are perhaps my favourites…. It’s a stunning display!
I literally gasped when I saw your photo of the trimmed boxwoods. A beautiful, inspirational take on an old idea.
It’s amazing, isn’t it? We were almost overwhelmed and overstimulated. The range of color is stunning.
Yes, definitely overwhelmed! So many plants, so little time…..
One of my favorite places and, of course, many of my favorite plants!
Which one is your favorite? Can you narrow it down?
My favorite conifer is usually the one I am looking at… right now! :^)
