Short Needle Mugo Pine Gift Tree

Sale price Price $37.00 Regular price

This plant is an extremely slow-growing speciality. This pine stands out for its unusually tiny needles that cover short, stout branches. Visible pale-brown buds are presented within the dense foliage, particularly in early spring.This is a very reliable and hardy tree that proves that sometimes good things come in small packages.   After 10 years, a mature plant will measure 12 inches (30 cm) tall and 2 feet (60 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 1 to 2 inches (2.5 - 5 cm). This plant would be an excellent choice for an alpine rockery or the front on a mixed border of dwarf conifers.
