USDA Zone:

    Full sun
  • Watering Needs
    Water regularly- weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Requires less frequent watering, once established.

A superior selection of this popular evergreen tree. Foliage is brighter blue than other forms; the coloring is retained through the winter. Growth habit is more uniform and compact. A lovely accent.

Design Ideas: This is a very hardy Pine for larger suburban homesites, where it's blue tint is a fine contrast against more emerald evergreens. Plant in a dense group to provide a woodland enclosure for more spectacular deciduous trees and shrubs. Makes a great single accent or use a pair to flank a driveway entry. Good choice for screening off neighboring multistory windows. Tall and thin, it makes a good small-scale windrow or use as a shelterbelt component.

Provide enriched, loamy, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune as needed to maintain topiary size and shape.
