     PINUS - PINE

60085 Pinus aristata - Bristlecone Pine — (-20°F, USDA Zones 5-8) A very slow growing, small tree or shrub native to the White Mountains of California. Individual trees of this pine are known to be over 4,000 years old, with some estimated at 7,100; thus, they are the oldest living things on earth. Only grows 3-6" a year and after many years can reach a height of 20’. Fine, short, dark green needles are heavily marked with pitch exudations, creating a silvered effect. Growing at low elevations, the separated branches take on the look of long, fat, bottle brushes. Excellent for bonsai. Unique in the landscape. 6-12" $15.95, 2-3’ $49.95

60415 Pinus aristata ‘Sherwood Compact’ — DWARF. This is one of the smallest of the dwarfs, growing 1-3" a year. It can be pyramidal or ball shaped. The white resin on the needles creates additional interest for this choice specimen. 3-6" $13.95, 6-12" $29.95

Pinus cembra - Swiss Stone Pine — (-50°F, USDA Zones 3-7) A charming five needle pine with beautiful bluish-green needles which have a white band running down each needle. It is an upright growing tree of distinctive habit. Eventually growing to 50’ plus, at a rate of 3-6" a year, it will take some time to reach this size in your garden. This very important ornamental does well in open areas, in severe climates and in dry clay soil.

NEW 60723 Pinus cembra ‘Chalet’ — DWARF. This is a dense, rounded column of soft blue-green foliage introduced by Vermeulen Nursery in New Jersey in 1972. I think all of the Pinus cembras are particularly nice with wonderful textural interest. 1-2’ $41.95

The handsome, broad head is comprised of long, bluish-green needles and is borne on the top quarter of the height of the straight, reddish trunk. The trunk often is composed of multiple trunks at ground level. This makes an especially desirous effect for informal gardens and provides moderate shade for woodland gardens.

NEW 61103 Pinus densiflora ‘Jane Kluis’ — A flat topped mounding variety of a cross between Austrian Pine and Japanese Red Pine. Leaves a fresh light green and stiff. A different color and texture for an eye-catching spot. From a seedling found by Rudolph Kluis in Marlboro, New Jersey in the 1970’s. 6-12" $13.95

60537 Pinus heldreichii — (-20°F, USDA Zones 5-7) Syn. P. leucodermis. Slow growing and compact, this species will eventually reach a height of 30’ with a spread of 15’. Smooth, white bark with dark green needles. 1-2’ $39.95

60418 Pinus heldreichii ‘Aureospicata’ — Although slow growing, this will become a statuesque, broadly conical tree over time. The sharp yellow topped needles are clustered at branch ends. The color effectively accents yellow patches which occur on the trunk of mature trees as the rich, gray bark begins to exfoliate. 2-3’ $45.95

60059 Pinus heldreichii ‘Compact Gem’ — DWARF. Compact is right for this little jewel! Grows 1’’ per year to form a tidy, dwarf conifer with needles of a nearly black green. 6-12" $32.95, 1-2’ $39.95

NEW 60787 Pinus heldreichii ‘Dayton’ — Unlike the species this variety has a moderate growth rate. Like the species it has a great texture and contrast with its dark green needles against the smooth white bark are very attractive. A nice selection! 2-3’ $45.95

60856 Pinus helderchii ‘Irish Bell’ — This cultivar makes a small sturdy tree that will grow nearly as wide as tall, reminiscent of a bell. The stiff, deep green needles are on the upper portion of the shoots, allowing the silver-white stems to be seen prominently through the foliage. Salt-tolerant and disease-resistant, a great choice for the urban landscape. 6-12" $29.95, 1-2’ $35.95

60821 Pinus heldreichii ‘Satellit’ — A upright form of pine that stays shorter than 25’. The deep green needles on this tree are thick along the vertical branches creating a lush dense effect. The texture of the P. leucodermis always catches the eye in the garden. 6-12" $26.95, 2-3’ $39.95

60542 Pinus heldreichii ‘Schmidtii’ — DWARF. A favorite small pine. This miniature ball of dark green foliage has reddish-brown buds and grows to only about 2’ tall in 25 years. 6-12" $49.95

Pinus koraiensis - Korean Pine — (-40°F, USDA Zones 3-7) This slow growing plant is considered one of the best pines for small gardens. It is a 5 needle pine that has dense, dark green needles which are short to medium length. Grows to 40’ in cultivation, but can attain heights of 100’ or more. Native to Japan and Korea, it is a very beautiful tree.

NEW 61026 Pinus koraiensis ‘Morris Blue’ — This is a pyrmidal slow growing pine to 35’ with green curved needles that cover the branches that are clear to the ground. You’ll like this one from, as the mname suggests, the Morris Arborium in Philadelphia. 6-12" $16.95

Pinus mugo - Swiss Mountain Pine — (-50°F, USDA Zones 2-9) Mugo pine is an excellent landscape plant useful in many areas. In its taller forms, it is a small tree. In its lower forms, it can be a ground cover with a low ‘bun shape’ and soft appearance. Quite versatile, as it will thrive in many situations. The forms we offer are generally the smaller types. It adapts well to shearing in the spring to keep the lower forms very flat. All will do well in Zone 9 and even Zone 10 of California (though not in desert heat), but possibly not as well in the Southeast.

61001 Pinus mugo ‘Big Tuna’ — Boldly textured, medium length needles make this sturdy, upright, multi-stemmed tree a favorite for areas in the landscape with a little more room. The slow-growing trees become taller than wide and quite bushy. Very hardy and uniquely dense, ‘Big Tuna’ is compact, but not dwarf. Buds turn showy during cold winter months and stand out distinctly against dark green foliage. 1-2’ $24.95 on standard

NEW 61001 Pinus mugo ‘Gnom’ — MINIATURE.. At first this is squat and then developing into an upright to conical form, with shorter, more dense needles and a flat top, slowly maturing to 1.5’ tall by 3’ wide. Dirr indicates that a 25-year-old plant was only 15" tall. 6-12" $16.95

60241 Pinus mugo var. pumilio — A form which is widely distributed in the mountains of central Europe. A superb variety for the landscape, it is often used as a ground cover.

Terminal buds are very showy, and the tight globose plant will not outgrow even the smallest garden space. 6-12" $32.95

60101 Pinus mugo ‘Valley Cushion’ — MINIATURE. This is another plant from the Oregon State University selection program. It is exceptional for its tight, low growth and deep green needles which cover the plant so tightly, it looks like a cushion. Very special! 6-12" $41.95

Pinus nigra - Austrian or Black Pine — (-30°F, USDA Zones 4-8) This impressive tree originated in the forests of Austria and extends as far south as Turkey. Very rough, dark brown and deeply cut bark along with shining dark green needles make for an unforgettable show. This is an excellent background tree which is very dark green, viewed from a distance. Mature height generally reaches to about 50’, sometimes greater.

60601 Pinus nigra ‘Black Prince’ — DWARF. Possibly a hybrid of P. thunbergii, this P. nigra is a very compact form. Short, dense whorls of mid-green needles seem almost like daisies looking up at you. It is also a slow grower. 6-12" $15.95, 1-2’ $49.95

61065 Pinus nigra ‘Helms Narrow’ — We aren’t sure of the name of this good looking conifer. Since there are so many applications for narrow conifers and relatively few of them, we thought w should bring this to you regardless of the name. 3-4’ $41.95

NEW 60789 Pinus nigra ‘Oregon Green’— Slow growing Austrian Black Pine, mature size 8’x 6’. Plant has dark green stiff needles, more numerous than the species. 1-2’ $19.95, 2-3’ $39.95

60686 Pinus nigra ‘Pierrick Bregeon’ — DWARF. Very unique, compact, mounding form, closely resembling Pinus mugo var. pumilo but with a faster growth rate. Dark green needles are long when the plant is young and as it matures, the new needles are reduced to ½ the normal length. Grows 3’ x 5’ with no shearing required. An outstanding dwarf. 2-3’ $79.95

60581 Pinus nigra ‘Wurstle’ — DWARF. This variety has small needles growing in tufts that come on later in the year. With age, it appears more rounded. 6-12" $26.95

Pinus parviflora - Japanese White Pine — (-20°F, USDA Zones 5-9) A mature specimen will have wide spreading branches and a flat topped head. As a young tree it will have a dense, conical almost pyramidal habit.

60760 Pinus parviflora ‘Azuma-goyo’ — DWARF. A slow growing small pine with needles about 1 1/4" long and thick. The blue color and dense growth make this a very pleasing plant that is just going to develop more character as it matures in the garden. 3-6" $29.95, 6-12" $35.95

60118 Pinus parviflora ‘Brevifolia’ — A very desirable short needled, slow growing pine (6-12" per year) with an upright habit. A 5 needled pine, each needle bluish with contrasting white on one side. It is a neat looking plant, excellent for rock gardens or wherever you need a small plant with pleasing color and habit. 6-12" $32.95

60704 Pinus parviflora ‘Burke’s Bonsai’ — This is one of the selections made by Joe Burke as suitable for Bonsai. It is an upright grower with short twisted blue-gray needles. 3-6" $29.95

60996 Pinus parviflora ‘El-ko-nishiki’ — Almost prostrate, irregular, deep green form. The branch ends turn up, giving it a happy aspect. As it matures, it develops a corky bark giving it even more interest. 6-12" $32.95

60489 Pinus parviflora ‘Goldilocks’ — Dramatic color of blue brushed with a creamy yellow. We believe that it will grow in an upright habit to be a nice semi-dwarf that will find a place in almost any landscape. 6-12" $39.95

NEW 61149 Pinus parviflora ‘Gyo-ku-sen’ — DWARF. Short, thick, slightly recurving blue-grey needles. One can never have too many small Pinus parvifloras. They just seem to highlight any area where they are planted. 3-6" $29.95
