ABSTRACT
The paper describes 11 new woody cultivars selected in Botanical Garden PAS in the years 1977-2009. The new cultivars include: seedlings of Picea pungens found in Podzamcze Nurseries with shoots and needles similar to Picea abies ‘Virgata’; plants selected from seedlings of Carpinus betulus ‘Pendula’ of very variable shapes, from depressed shrubby forms to tall trees with shapely pendant shoots; new yellow-leaved Thuja occidentalis with intensive colours and shape similar to Thuja occidentalis ‘Malonyana’ (it was selected from its seedling); a new form of delicately yellow-leaved Ginkgo biloba; and one cultivar of Liriodendron tulipifera with slightly conical, regular shape and strong growth habit.
