Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine (Pinus aristata) - 1 Gallon Pot
A wonderful North American native coniferous evergreen, the Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine lives to be older than any other tree. Some of the oldest single living specimens are over 4,000 years old! Even after death, the wood is so dense and resinous that the tree will remain standing for several hundred more years. A slow grower with a broad pyramidal form, it can reach 8 to 20 feet tall on average depending on pruning or training and 10 to 15 feet wide. The branches are densely clothed in aromatic, handsome blue-green needles covered with a resinlus fluid that makes them resistant to insects, fungus and other potential pests. The candlelike new growth, which forms on the tree in spring, can be pruned by up to 50 percent of their length to control the size and produce a more shrubby, dense form. Also, branches can be selectively removed from the tree to form very interesting and unique topiary forms. It produces two types of cones. The somewhat rounded pollen cones are bluish-red. The seed cones start out cylindrical and purple becoming bronze-brown as they open with age. Small mammals and birdsenjoy eating the black seeds. Extremely drought tolerant and adaptable to most any well-drained to even rocky, infertile and dry soil, it makes for a very low-maintenance and picturesque specimen in sunny landscape borders, rock gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs). Also excellent in containers and for bonsai. Sure to be an interesting conversation piece in the landscape! Get all the details below
