Hi!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Just feeling like sharing a few pictures of my father and son day yesterday at the Montreal botanical garden.

There was alot of interresting trees and cultivar's
A nice bonsai section (On our return I learned that there was 1 more bonsai sections that we completely missed.....)
There is a huge section with separate greenhouse's that all have their own climate so we could enjoy trees and plants from other parts of the planet.

To my surprise there was alot of different JM cultivar's newly planted outsise.
I knew already that some cultivar's could handle our climate fairly well in zone 5b but I did not expect to find 8 more....
Really nice visit, so if you ever come to Montréal put this visit on your to-do list.
Be ready for a long walk as this site is quite big awesome trees and plants in every corners especially outside.
My pictures are not representative of the size of the botanical garden site.
We were there for 7 hours and missed alot of stuff!!

Hope you enjoy
Ugo

Thanks!
Yes it was a very nice day that we enjoyed! Surprisingly he accepted the march like a real soldier, kids at 9yrs old are always exhausted for a reason I don't understand but he traveled the whole day without complaining so it had to be interesting!!....
His main interested was the different cultivars of Japanese maples and the seeds similar but with different shapes the are now producing.
Season after season he becomes more involved so a visit to the botanical garden was a must.

Here's a few more pictures:

Looks like a great day. Plenty of good bonsai on display and more interest in the outdoor gardens.
The hollow trunk Chinese elm must be old.

Anyone know what the multi trunk with reddish peeling bark pic 141834 at the end of post #1 is?

Hi Shibui!

The Chinese elm is 55yrs old.
Has for the picture my understanding is that it was a heptacodium but I have a doubt now!
