Plant details

Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), this attractive Mediterranean pine is conical when young, becoming domed with age. The blue-green juvenile leaves are retained for several years and shiny cones ripen in their third year. Like most pines, it will thrive in any well-drained soil in full sun.
