There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

USDA Zone:
  • Light Needs
    Full sun
  • Watering Needs
    Once established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat or containers.

One of the finest of the gold-hued pines, on a dwarf form! Short, densely arranged evergreen needles are an attractive green in spring and summer, turning to a rich gold tone as cold weather arrives. Most intense color in colder climates. Creates a bold statement as a specimen in smaller gardens, or in groupings in larger landscapes.
