The Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine is a dwarf evergreen with giant character. Its irregular branching makes every tree a unique specimen, with upright branches forming a rugged mound, adding a few inches in height and spread each year. The dark, rich-green needles cluster densely around the stems, and the spiny cones, hanging from the branches, add character and charm. This is the perfect plant for a bed of dwarf evergreens, and it also fits perfectly into any Asian or Japanese-themed garden design, with just the right look. It can also be grown as a specimen in a container or developed as a unique bonsai tree. These trees live for centuries, and in the wild they are among the oldest living things on the planet.

  • Handsome small pine tree of irregular habit
  • Dense, deep-green needles
  • Rugged forms with lots of character
  • Easily grown in dry, rocky soil
  • Very cold hardy to minus 50

The Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine should be planted in full sun, in well-drained soil. Once established it is highly drought resistant, and it thrives in rocky, sandy and gravel soils. Do not plant in poorly-drained or moist soil. It needs no special care or pruning. Note that the white flecks on the needles are part of the charm and character of this tree, and not signs of insects. In fact, this tree rarely has any pest or disease problems at all. In time this tree can reach 20 feet tall or even more, so as with all dwarf evergreens, allow enough room when planting for its final size.
