Bright new growth on Hemlocks.

You're getting a little risqué there, Doug...

Here's that Carya.

Hickories are beautiful and the Hickory pic is stunning. I love the Hawthorns, too, and although all of the big ones near our cabin in NC have died (so sad!) there are still quite a few small ones around and I keep hoping one of them will be the one that can endure the woolly adelgid. Are they still doing OK in KY?

I think you mean Hemlock?

They are still hanging on in the eastern KY mountains, but no one believes that they'll avoid the coming threat of wooly adelgid.

I don't know where Hawthorn came from, it's late. Sometimes I just reach for a noun. Hemlock is what I was thinking. Thanks for the correction. I'm glad they're hanging on for you there.

Bardstown, KY(Zone 6a)

I think it was in West Virginia back in February where I saw SEVERAL Hemlocks infested.

VV, have you been to the plant sale at the Louisville Nature Center? I plan on going this Saturday.

Scott County, KY(Zone 5b)

I just got back from Washington DC (since Wednesday).

I haven't been to the LNC plant sale, though it is located in the same park where my office is. It's always on the weekend - a bit far for me to go on the day off.

Saint Louis, MO(Zone 6a)

Here's Wha's tri-colored beech.
And Doug's bald cypress (actually this is a pond cypress, but same idea...)
