This is a Sequoia - a young one i suspect. The nebari is already very interesting to look at.
If you are growing a bonsai and have styling angst and need to see what a mature example of a wild tree looks like then this is the place to be.
The scots pines are lovely.
The nursery section on the way out of the gardens is rather good. Some very interesting and rare Pinus Negra ( european black pine ) cultivars are available there. There is also an extensive selection of azaleas available there too - interesting named varieties.
