Dude seriously, Bjorn stated the dwarf form of precumbens can have scale foliage. Why do you keep arguing the point.... is "nana" not one of many ways to denote a dwarf form of a species? the exact form Bjorn refers to when saying it can have scale foliage?Jezzuz Christ.
Yes I am. I am referring to the NANA form. The NANA form is the same species. It DOES NOT HAVE scale foliage. Bjorn is referring to some other plant entirely. A plant which you and all your friends mistakenly call Juniperus Procumbens Nana
Is DNA analysis enough for you people?................
TAXONOMY OF THE MULTI-SEEDED, ENTIRE LEAF TAXA OF JUNIPERUS, SECTION SABINA: SEQUENCE ANALYSIS OF nrDNA AND FOUR cpDNA REGIONS
Juniperus procumbens differs from J. chinensis by a prostrate habit with only decurrent (juvenile) leaves. Although the taxon is distinct due to these characteristics, the presence of only juvenile leaves (neoteny) and prostate habit may be controlled by only a few genes.
and why is this so VERY VERY important for you to be correct in this argument? its a plant dude, relax...if it wants to grow scale it's going to, and a name change either way is not going to influence how any of these plants is worked for bonsai now is it? Is it worth antagonizing yourself on this forum? throwing insults now it seems, even though they are disguised. It's not such a bad thing to be wrong sometimes you know...
just relax breath and let it GO
