Carstens’ Wintergold Mugo Pine is a beautiful and rare dwarf evergreen that turns rich shades of golden yellow in winter, while appearing normal green in summer. It grows slowly into a broad mound about a foot tall and two feet across. This easily-grown plant makes a wonderful addition to a garden bed, and it is especially useful in colder areas, since it is hardy down to zone 2. It looks perfect among boulders and gravel, or among other evergreens, with its dense, rugged growth. It also is an attractive addition to foundation plantings, or in the front of shrub beds. For a boost to winter color in your garden, this very special plant is hard to beat.

  • Attractive low, mounding form
  • Needles turn golden yellow in the winter months
  • Slow growing for limited spaces
  • Extremely cold-hardy to minus 50
  • Attractive addition to a bed of evergreens

Carstens’ Wintergold Mugo Pine should be planted in a sunny location, to keep the growth dense, and to encourage the best coloring. It grows easily in any well-drained soil, and it is tolerant of rocky ground too. Water regularly in the first seasons, but after that it is tolerant of normal drought conditions. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it needs no trimming to keep it dense, spreading form. For attractive, low-maintenance winter color, this plant can hardly be beaten. Rarely available, and highly desirable.
