Contorted Eastern White Pine: Pinus strobus 'Contorta' - 16 Inch Pot - 6-7 Foot Tall
Pinus strobus 'Contorta' is a unique and eye-catching evergreen tree with contorted branches. It adds a sculptural element to the landscape and is a focal point in gardens and parks.
Caring for Pinus strobus, commonly known as Eastern White Pine, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This majestic evergreen tree thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Plant it in a spacious location with enough room for its eventual height and spread. Water the tree deeply and infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Eastern White Pine is relatively drought-tolerant once established. Mulch around the base of the tree to help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature. Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove any dead or damaged branches to maintain the tree's health and appearance. Eastern White Pine is generally resistant to pests and diseases. With proper care, your Pinus strobus will provide you with a graceful silhouette, soft-textured needles, and a sense of tranquility to your landscape.
