Pinus Coulteri

The Coulter Pine!

We recently discovered at RHS Garden Wisley (less than 5 miles from here) a fine example of the Pinus Coulteri, The Coulter Pine!

The Pinus Coulteri was discovered in 1831 by Thomas Coulter (1793-1843), the Irish botanist and physician, who collected plants in Mexico and California. Not a relative I think! Thomas Coulter was the first curator of the Trinity College Herbarium and is also celebrated in The Coulter Garden in his home town.
