Introduction

 

 

 

            It seems daring now to write a summarising study about the taxonomy of Conifers and the naming of commercial entries, however, several researchers in interested countries are working on this task to update the knowledge on this botanical trait to build up more handy, more useful, more careful and more clear descriptions by using also the most recent results.

            The economically developed cultural areas breed a growing number of horticultural variants, ‘cultivars’. This generates the need to give them proper names founded taxonomically, to be differentiated from other existing taxonomical units.

            This need faces us with two important questions of modern taxonomy. The first is the naming of the genus, species, varietas, subspecies and forms with a validity for the whole world. The second is the clear, unambiguous description of the horticultural cultivars.

            I think that the answer for the first question is not my task as it would need an international co-operation of wide range between the experts of the coniferous taxonomists and would take a long time.

            We have a better prospect to answer the second question. Not only the national registration authorities (NRA) need a more solid basis for registration, but an international need is also there to make internationally accepted the work of NRA. It is not an accident that a great work was made by the Royal Horticultural Society, London. Experts of the great exporting nations are also working on different kinds  of plant registers. lists, indexes and data pools. Of course a well expressed economical need and interest  are behind this activity: the well marketable and successful new selections bring serious royalties and income for the breeders and countries and functions as a trade mark. As the decision of the originality is often questionable. There are no collections where all cultivars and forms of a given genus would be represented and now the possibility is there that plants with different names can not be differentiated. Therefore an international testing organisation would be needed based on existing institutions specialised to different taxons. They would serve the whole world. So the testing and identifying commercial cultivars would be possible and the originality of new commercial cultivars could be secured.

            When I have begun this taxonomy work, I had quite different ideas. I founded my own conifer collection in 1982, which was named later officially as Mesterházy Pinetum. At the beginning I consulted mostly the guide Krüssmann: Die Nadelhölze, but the answers were in many cases not found. I should stress, this is not the insufficiency of the work cited. Very often I found names that were not included here, because of later selections, and I felt so that I have to screen the literature to see what is the real situation. Of course, I had a strong interest to describe properly the many hundred entries (cultivars, forms) of my collection according to a solidly based taxonomic environment.

            This work as every such contribution is not perfect, but I hope that this paper will be consulted by many breeders, taxonomists and arboretum specialists, researchers in many countries. Their ideas will be highly appreciated and used to make this work increasingly complete to serve scientific and practical needs.

            This work aims not only assert the mean trends of the taxonomy, but also to make public the local results. During editing, based on available literature I have included also cultivars, of which taxonomic position has not bees secured (not legitime). I insisted to include them because I am convinced that also cultivars need listing that are existing now independently of the fact, whether they are formally described or not. By this way I would like to inform not only the taxonomy, but I intend to inform also practical breeders and  users.

            We have incredibly large undetected areas not being exploited taxonomically and commercially. Except the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, The Netherlands, generally Western Europe, nearly the all the Mid and South Americas are not researched well, the tropics are mostly unknown and the rest of Europe and Asia has also unknown materials that could be included. Every one who feels that could help me will be participated in this work. Please contact me: zs.mesterhazy@chello.hu

            During the last 15 years changed the World. The World Wide Web gives new opportunities, that earlier never existed. As I dreamed in 1995, that I could make a book with 200.000 illustrations, now the dream realised and became a real fact.

 

April 1995.

January 2005.

 

I think now in 2010, we have to divide the conifering history to different ages.

 

The first conifer age existed from the botanical beginnings to 1959, I call it as Classical or Latin Conifer Age. The second age I state till 1993, the Welch book, who made a resume of what he found and collected. This age is speaking of Krüssmann - Horstmann – Grootendorst – Jeddeloh – Barabits – Iseli – Jerry Morris, who were working with a new system, and they found even 200 cultivars in their life. This is the Conifer Hero Age, when great persons were able to work, their names are well known overall the world. This age looks to be unfinished, the documentations are rather poor, even lost. That’s why even Welch couldn’t collect everything, he wanted. Despite all, he is a big hero of this age. He tried, but the technology was simply not enough developed to help him. We have to learn, save and develop further his achievements in detecting conifer cultivars.

 

And now we are living in the 3rd Conifer Age, which is based on computer technology. This age happens today with new heroes, Holata, Slama, Fincham, Smits, Grubb, Sampson, Kohout, Hodi Toth etc. who are working in a wide great area with multimedia and modern technology. The breeding technology is also changed dramatically. Year to year hunderds of witches brooms are harvested in the forests, alpinists are working with the breeders. I brought in 1995 Barabits with his Life Monument to this age, we have the possibility to bring Harper-Morris-Stanley-Fincham-Waxman-Rezek-Dyskra etc. to this age with their Life Monuments, if we write them. We dont need forgotten breeders, we need living breeders, who get light at 40, 50 or 60 of their age. We need living heroes to learn their secrets. We need botanists, who bring down the forests from the mountains to the people as likely dwarfs or any forms, colours. And we need to be informed about conifering news throughout the world as soon as possible.

 

The first 3rd Conifer Age experimental book is published by me about the Hungarian Conifer Treasury. More than 650 hungarian breeded cultivars with full documentation and full service is in. The author stays now in the middle, fully description, photos from the www, and the story, of course. As anybody is reading the book on a computer, will have all possible available informations about the subject.

 

After that the Conifer Treasury 3.0 I hope and guess, this book could be the first general documentation of the 3rd Conifer Age. 17 years after Welch we have about 4000 new conifer cultivars. I hope, this will be a successful document: 14800 cultivar records, 800 species with photo gallery, photos of 4600 cultivars by google connections, 1600 more (of 6000) photos from different sites, which are not available for google (ACS, Stanley, Holata, Edwin Smits, Kohout, Burdan, Daglezja and me), english common names vocabulary, and more and more textal descriptions. After that with partners I would like to publish more national Conifer Treasuries, because these are the future grounds of conifering. Simply to find the creating people, the conifer breeders.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Thanks to all organizations, education, nurseries and privats throughout the World, who cares conifer photos on their sites. Special thanks to the Gardenweb conifering sites, where the visitors collected in the last years thousands of their own high quality conifer photos – and most of them are high educated professional nurserymen, or enthusiast conifer friends with high quality photoing knowledge- but sorryfully they work with nicknames.

                                                           This attractive, slow-growing European White Fir has a distinctive horizontal habit with compact branches spreading out in low, dense layers. Shiny green needles with silvery undersides cloak the silver-barked branches and give the plant a refined, classy look. Originally found as a witch's broom at Holden Arboretum, in Kirkland, Ohio, this namesake forms a mound that stays wider than tall. Soft, new spring growth and dainty tan buds add to its year-round interest. Iseli text.

                                               Scions from a plant growing along the stream in Gees front garden, this has the best winter color of any Fir. An amazing lush dark green even in winter, the parent plant is apparently an unnamed seedling. I have some questions about whether chinensis exists as a species however the parent plant is so distinct that for now I have to trust the label. Arrowhead text.

                                                           Variegated yellow or gold.

                                                           New growth puts out lemon yellow in full sun. Underside of needles tends to develop a pale grey green look while top of needles (in sun) retains a pale yellow appearance throughout the year. Thus, on sunny days the reflection from bright light tends to mute the color but on overcast bright days, the tops of the needles glow brightly. Needles turn pale grey green if grown in partial shade. ACS text.
