Ponderosa Pine

Pinus ponderosa

$59.00$149.00 + GST

A tall and impressive evergreen tree with gorgeous long needles and a strong central leader. Has an open appearance with a tall, rounded form. Develops a yellow hue in winter. Makes an excellent windbreak. Dark green needles are held throughout the season. The interesting exfoliating orange-brown bark adds a nice appeal to the landscape. Deer do not particularly care for this plant and will leave it alone in favor of other tasty treats.
