Pinus banksiana

$59.00$149.00 + GST

The hardiest of the pine trees. A native tree growing right up to the arctic circle. Has a unique, open, habit. Needs adequate space and full sun. Turns a yellow hue in winter. Prefers a light, sandy soil. An evergreen with a strong central leader and a rounded form. Deer do not particularly care for this plant and will leave it alone in favor of other tasty treats.
